Cyclocross is a big part of Brighton Excelsior's activities right now. If you want to do cyclocross on the Sussex Coast then we're the club for you. We have loads of adult and youth riders participating in the London X League, which has several races in our area. The season kicks off with our own event at Stanmer Park which is always brilliantly organised and attended.

"Props to Brighton Excel & VC Jubilee for today's CX at Stanmer. Great course, great marshalling and great tea and cakes! Thank you."

On Tuesday nights in Autumn and Winter we run cyclocross training at Water Hall Rugby Club to the North of Hove [BN1 8YR]. The sessions, which are run by a qualified British Cycling coach, are an intense blend of skills and interval training and non-members are welcome to attend for a small fee.

"They’re really good! All the coaches, and especially Ben, put so much time and effort into them and they have definitely helped me to progress as a rider...and there is a great atmosphere within the group."

"Skills, intense fitness sessions, bike handling and cornering practice, group riding and a good time to play on the CX bike without any cars to worry about. Ben is very good and clearly enjoys putting everyone through pain! A good mix of technical, fitness and endurance work."

There are many reasons to give cyclocross a try, it is a great way to keep your fitness through the long Winter months, it gets you out on those wet days where the road bike ride is too cold and wet and a MTB ride is too slow and muddy. There is something special about a group of like minded people lining up in the rain to race flat out for 45 mins and all having a laugh at the same time. The racing is as hard and fast as you want it to be, there are so many little races going on within the main race; when you do it on a regular basis you tend to be racing the same small group and soon get to know them. This gives you the impetus to try and beat them in the next event! So you keep getting better.

Combine CX training with turbo training (Wednesday nights) and some of our riders are almost fitter at the end of the Winter than the end of the Summer.
