It’s getting near that leg shaving, elbow barging, blood and tears time of year again, so get your diaries out to note down the regional events near you.
‘Oop North’ the NAMBS series takes in some old favourite venues as well as some new ones. Unfortunately as they can’t afford the time to do all the extra paperwork this year, there’ll be no overall series title, just indivdual races. All rounds still count towards National points though.

Round 2. 27 May, Gisburn Forest, Ribblesdale. XC only.
Round 3. 16/17 June, Innerleithan near Peebles. All disciplines.
