League entries

Entries for the 2018-19 season are not yet open. Watch this space for details.

If you're a beginner, take a look at our guide for people who are new to cyclo-cross.

You must join the league before on-line entries close for the first event you wish to ride. This is normally midnight on the Tuesday before the event. If you haven't joined in time, you'll still be able to ride but you won't qualify for league points.

Age categories

Your age category for Eastern League 2017-18 events is determined by your year of birth, according to the following table:

Riding out of category

There are some limited opportunities for adults (16 years or over) to ride outside of their "official" category. Here's what's allowed and what's not...

The senior/junior race is effectively an open race. That means that anyone who is 16 or over on 31st December 2017 can ride in it. There are no separate prizes for over-40s, and you will not get British Cycling veteran ranking points (though you can earn BC senior ranking points if you finish high enough).

The other races are restricted category. That means the only people allowed to ride the Vet 40-49 race are men who will be between 40 and 49 on 31st December 2017. The only people allowed to ride the Women/Vet 50+ race are (a) women, and (b) men who will be 50 or over on 31st December 2017.

If you're a veteran or a woman and you want to ride two races in a day, you can do so but one must be your official race (i.e. Vet 40-49 or Women/Vet 50+ as appropriate) and the other must be the senior/junior race.

League membership works similarly but you can only be in one league during the year. If you are a veteran or junior and you would prefer to compete in the senior league, please tick the appropriate box when you join the league. If you join as a veteran but decide afterwards that you'd rather compete in the senior league, email the results compiler to request a change of league category.
