round 5

The 2023 UK National Cross-country Series, Round 5 will take place at Tackeroo Campsite, Cannock Chase, British Cycling can today confirm, over the weekend of July 1st & 2nd.


Entry on-line only via BC website; no paper entries or entries on the day.


The course has a real old school feel and our course designer, fresh from working on the Tokyo Olympic course as well as Rounds 1 - 4 & Exposure Lights TwentyFour12, has added a few surprises to keep even the top riders guessing as they make their way round the natural environment.

Venue Address:

Tackeroo Campsite, Penkridge Bank Rd, Rugeley, WS15 2UA


Event organiser, Matt Williams, said:

“At Cannock Chase you’ll find really nice twisty, natural single track, technical decents and open grassland sections with plenty of room for overtaking. On site we’ve been given a blank canvas to create a course suitable of a National event and that's what we’ve done"

The venue will also host all the usual facilities, promotional tents and food and drink vendors. Camping is also still available on site from the Friday to the Sunday.
