The Kelham Island CX was the first Race of the Sheffield Urban CX series. This amazing venue has played a key roll in Sheffield’s steel industry and on May 5th 2017 Kelham Island some fast and furious Urban Cyclo Cross action took place on these iconic Sheffield cobbles
The course is currently in development and is sure to be exciting. With a mix of exterior and interior sections, features and cobbles we are having an amazing time designing a course that will be one to remember.

Here’s what some of our riders thought of the race
I thought it was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed the racing – it was close and exciting and it was good to hang about, get some food and watch the afternoon races.

First ever bike race and it was really enjoyable, has inspired me to enter some other races.
