Oxonian Cyclocross 2019 at Standlake
Oxonian CC is pleased to be promoting round 10 of the 2019 Wessex Cyclocross League on Sunday 24th November. This year we will be returning to Standlake, a few miles west of Oxford. This was a new venue for 2018 which proved extremely popular.
We’re very grateful to a number of local businesses that have made significant contributions to support the event.
The venue offers interesting and challenging courses for all age groups. The full course mixes a number of wooded sections with a fast, open field. The wooded sections include technical single track, wider fast flowing tracks, a few “ride it if you can” ramps and a proper run up. The open sections are spiced up by a number of motocross/enduro features, including berms and “the whoops”.
The Youth/Novice course will follow the same route, but with a slightly easier run-up in the woods, and missing out part of the open section. The U12 course will be shorter, but still taking in one of the wooded sections. The U10 course will bypass the woods, but will include some of the features in the main field.
The venue is on a gravel base and drains extremely well, and we’d expect the ground to be firm even after significant rain.
Access & parking
The venue is very easy to get to, situated on the A415 midway between the A40 (Witney) and the A420. The course is on land adjacent to Standlake Arena, and we have secured the use of the arena’s ample car park (hard standing). The arena is accessed via a layby off the A415 just north of Standlake – please see map below.
We have limited space for club and team gazebos close to the start/finish area. If you wish to bring one you must contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can make sure that there is enough room.
The access road to the arena is also the pedestrian/cycle route from the car park to the course, so please be very careful when entering and leaving the venue.
Please note that the postcode for the arena (OX29 7PR) will take you to the industrial estate on the other side of the A415. The correct location is shown by the pin on the map above.
