CYCLOCROSS

Signing up for the Race

The race is part of the HEL CX Cup series in the capital region. Season Final is the 2. leg of HEL CX Cup. The HEL CX Cup season continues to January 2019.

Race entry instructions are available here on the HEL CX Cup site. Race info will be published closer to the event both on helcx.com and the HEL CX Cup Facebook page. Late entry is possible on the morning of the race.

Trying out Cyclocross

The best way to try cyclocross is to race! If you don’t yet own a cyclocross bike, the Hobby/Novice category allows participation without restrictions on equipment so you can for example race on your MTB.

Introduction to Cyclocross

If you’re not ready to race yet, but curious, there will be an introductory session after the day’s racing (starting at about 2:30pm). Bike optional.

ENDURO

Enduro-competition in Season Final is customized because of television.  It differs a bit from normal pattern. Anybody can participate. Routes in Kivikko are not too challenging and for many cyclists very familiar. If you are interested of this event you will have a perfect opportunity to try easy-competing for example in Funduro -class.
