Exeter Racecourse, exeter
From the Promoter:
The Haldon Heroic CX Sportive, now in it’s third year, will take place from Exeter Racecourse on Saturday, 25th March 2017. Places are limited to 300 across the three routes.
The Haldon Heroic is an enduro style cycle event which takes place over mixed terrain. The course has been designed as a Sportive for the cyclo-cross bike. However it is equally suited to XC, MTB or Gravel Bikes. The Haldon Heroic offers you a choice of three routes. The CX-Micro (15 miles), the CX-Medio (36 miles) and the CX-Mega (50 miles).
The CX Mega has five ‘Forest Stages’ which are linked together by a 27 mile all-terrain ‘Sportive Route’, creating a grueling challenge for any rider. The CX-Medio has two ‘Forest Stages’ and uses the same ‘Sportive Route’. The CX-Micro is an afternoon ride with three ‘Forest Stages’ linked together by some quiet lanes around Haldon. The combination of these three routes ensures that there is something suitable for all to enjoy.
Each of the ‘Forest Stages’ are timed and prizes are awarded to the stage winners. There are also ‘Spot Prizes’ which can be won by anyone who completes the stage. The ‘Sportive’ course is not timed, leaving you to enjoy the ride at your own pace. The route uses a mixture of Devon Country Lanes, Green Lanes, Bridleways, Farm Tracks and Open Common.
