Preview of the Iceni Velo CX on Jan 19, 2020

Location: Ada Cole Avenue, Snetterton, Norwich NR16 2LP, UK

Plans are firming up for Iceni Velo's annual cyclo-cross event at World Horse Welfare! The 2020 edition (part of the Eastern CX League's 2019/20 calendar) is sponsored by First Self Drive, a car & van hire company in Norwich. I cycled down to the venue today, in suitably miserable weather, and had a look around to check that we will be able to lay out the course as planned.

As in recent years, the course takes up two fields, an indoor arena and a dirt track. Regular racers may notice (and appreciate) a change this time with the course running anti-clockwise - and with an uphill start/finish straight. Full-height hurdles will feature again (for the youth riders and older), and the exit from the bomb-hole will involve a clamber up a steep bank. You can browse the course on Google MyMaps, and choose the layers that you want to see.
