As it allows cyclo-cross bikes I would imagine XC unless there are some incredibly brave people out there...

I did a cyclo cross race years ago and turned up on a 32lb full sus marin. Got lots of funny looks and sneers. Then placed in the top 20.  Big Grin

I got lots of funny looks racing at Fowlmead on my 36lb Enduro Big Grin Was very satisfying beating racing snakes on carbon HT's though Smile

Wish I lived a bit closer as I would be up for this. I'd imagine it will be quite a goon course from what I saw yesterday.
