BC announced today that the 2011 national cyclocross championships will take place in the Moorways stadium in Derby.
The venue was host to the 2nd round of last season's national trophy. I had a shocker of a ride there with a rolled tub and a generally poor start to the race, but it'll be a worthy venue for a tough race.
I'm interested to see how it cuts up in January - especially as I'll be a veteran next year and will be racing on day 1 of 2; so the mud that can come (I pray) at that time of year after a soggy winter can be nice and slippy before too much of a racing line develops.
I really hope that John Holmes & co can eradicate those rather strange dead turns put in to get us over kerbs, but I'm sure they will do; plenty of time to get a really good course in and the East Mids rarely let us down with course design.
Seems strange looking forward to a race in eleven months though!
