It's hard to believe the Winter Classic has been going on for 8 years!
Our secret to success is to keep things simple. Great old school racing with a challenging but suitable for all course design.
Categories that promote competitive racing regardless of ability and a relaxed fun atmosphere. Oh and no crazy entry prices!
Generally, the start of the season for the XC Mountain Bike racers in the Midlands, turnout is always big for this event.
Many categories will sell out before Christmas with riders super keen to kick off their year.
We made a number of changes to the category system for the previous event and we're pleased to say they worked really well. That means that things remain unchanged for 2022 other than an increase to the lap numbers for the Youth boys (from 2 laps to 3laps) and the same for the E-Bike riders.
Held as before on the popular area of Cannock Chase the event will once again be focused more on the newbie or fun rider. The Classic events have always been about grass routes of mountain biking. Riders from 3 years old to 70 years. People who ride every day and those that have just started. Everybody with one thing in common and that’s a love for Mountain Biking.
The course is traditional mountain biking with everything from short and sharp climbs, single track descents and fire road blasts. We aim for a course which is 100% ride-able therefore where we have a technical section we will also have an easy route for those who may be not quite so confident.
We often get asked what standard you need to be to ride in our events. We would say that if you up to riding the red route around Cannock Chase then you are at a suitable level. If you aren't quite at that level yet then you may find sections of our full course too difficult.
At the venue, you’ll find camping facilities, freshwater, hard standing parking 100 metres from the start and great viewpoints for spectators. We’ll also have caterers and trade stands along.
