Battle in the Bowl: Cyclocross Meets Gravel Racing
You know we love cyclocross, and you know we love gravel riding and racing. Thus you won’t be surprised to know we’re quite excited to hear about The Battle in the Bowl race!
Taking place at the Matterly Bowl in Winchester on 12 June, 2016, The Battle in the Bowl is billed as a race where, “cyclocross meets gravel racing in an epic showdown!” The subtitle of this race, which is also quite descriptive, is, “South Downs Super CX. Helping to make this super race so epic is the fact that it delivers two hours of racing around a four-mile course featuring, “flat-out fast gravel tracks, a breathtaking grass track climb around the rim of the bowl itself, a flying wooded descent back to the arena and over a mile of taped, technical classic ‘cross!”
Organizers also say that 90% of the course will be visible to spectators. That’s awesome for friends and family that come to watch!
Registration opens soon. Organizers suggest you sign up for the event newsletter for exact details on registration, and to get information as soon as it’s released.
