Date: Sunday 13 March 2016
Event: Ulster XC Series Round 1
Venue: Craigavon Lakes
Host club: Apollo CT
This year the host club has designed a new layout with a shorter lap length for the senior riders (this means more laps though!!) The venue and course layout offers interest to riders of all skill levels. The youth track now incorporates more of the trails among the trees and less of the grass area.
