World Cup - Saturday 29th November 2014.
National Trophy, C2 Men & Women - Sunday 30th November 2014.
Campbell Park, Milton Keynes.
On saturday November 29th 2014 for the first time in history a round of the UCI Cyclocross World Cup will take place outside of mainland Europe. Welcome to ‘cross British-style, welcome to Milton Keynes!
The city and people of Milton Keynes are excited to welcome the best riders from around the globe and both hardcore fans and curious first time spectators from both near and far.
The day after the UCI World Cup we are also proud to host a round of the British National Series at the same venue, giving an opportunity for British riders of all ages and abilities to ride in the wheel tracks of the stars.
On the links above you should be able to find all the information you need, but if there is something you can’t find don’t hesitate to hit ‘Contact us’ and we’ll answer your question.
Buy a ticket, book a parking spot, dress up, paint your face, bring something that makes a noise (or buy a cowbell on-site), and watch the best Brits take on the might of Belgium, the Netherlands, the USA and many more. Better still book a room, have a beer or two, and make a weekend of it.
We look forward to seeing you in November!
As spectators, we hope your preparation is going well - buying tickets, booking hotels and planning a great weekend. For a few people, the preparations for 29th November revolve less around logistics and more around being in the best possible form to compete at this historic race.
We would like to introduce you to one of those few: Steve James.
Steve is, at 22, already firmly established as one of the UK's top cyclocross riders. He's been an U23 National Champion and has been mixing it up with the Elites in the National Trophy series over the past couple of seasons. Having competed for GB as an U23, Steve now looks to kick start his Senior career by wearing a Great Britain jersey again, this time at the very first home World Cup.
He must be selected by British Cycling, confirmation of which won't be until a week prior to the race, but we are going to follow Steve's lead up to the race nonetheless to give you a rider's perspective of race preparation; we can all get excited, nervous and hyped up together! The Milton Keynes World Cup Cyclocross is firmly marked in Steve's race diary and he will be doing all he can to secure himself a place on the start line.
With two months to go until the World Cup comes to Milton Keynes, we caught up with Steve to ask what the Milton Keynes World Cup X means to him at this point.
