2020/21 – STATEMENT
Many of you will have seen a number of cyclo-cross leagues come out already with cancellation announcements for the forthcoming season.
Here in the East Midlands we wanted to update you on the three leagues that operate: NDCXL, Lincs League and Leicestershire League.
At this point all three leagues in the region are working with their respective committees, BC events teams as well as other relevant parties and have not made any final decisions about the coming season.
Discussions are ongoing and planning is still happening while we await a framework for sporting events.
While this is a very uncertain and challenging environment, health and safety must be put first and we are mindful of the huge amount of planning that goes into a cyclo-cross season. We await further guidance and a clearer picture before decisions are made.
We are hopeful that the cyclo-cross family gets to come together in some way for the upcoming season.
We will keep you all updated.

LCXL ROUND 9 CANCELLED
STORM Ciara is set to hit every corner of the UK “with a bang” this weekend, bringing gales of up to 80mph.
A joint decision has been made between the race organiser and Marston Lodge Estate to cancel the event on Sunday.
It would be unsafe to allow the event to proceed as a majority of the course is woodland based.
It is not any easy decision to reach.
More information about league tables to follow.
I am very sorry for an inconvenience this may cause.
LEAGUE OVERALL – 6 out of 8
Update – 6 rounds out of 8 to now count towards the overall.

ROUND 8 – CANCELLED
Regretfully ROUND 8 has been CANCELLED due to ground conditions.
We respect the request from Corby Borough Council, who have asked a multitude of other sports to cancel.
LCXL and Rockingham Forest Whs wish to maintain an excellent relationship with the council to benefit the future of our sport.
The weather forecast shows no sign of improving,
I’m just getting my head around refunds, transfer entries etc.
More details to follow.
Trust me, cancelling the event is not an easy decision to make.
