Another local business has stepped in to help support the organisers of the 2011National Cyclo-Cross Championships. Zepnat Cycles are an online Cyclo Cross Specialist retailer based in Derbyshire. They pride themselves on being a one-stop resource for all things cyclo-cross and offer specialist advice on all levels of equipment for the sport. The championships are to be held in January at Derby’s Moorways Centre, and will provide two days of exciting racing.

Julian Gould from Matlock, who is co-founder of www.Zepnat.com said, “We are very pleased to support the 2011 National Cyclo-Cross Championships in Derby. I know it will be a great event and many thanks go to John Holmes and his team at Derby Cyclo-cross for bringing this prestigious event to Derbyshire.” Gould himself organises local races and knows how difficult it is to keep standards high.

Gould is an experienced cyclo-cross rider having won the popular local Notts and Derby League four times, a record only bettered by current champion Ben Eedy. Zepnat now has its own cyclo-cross team which has gained much success over recent years. Gould said, “The team have been National Veteran Team champions for the last 2 seasons, and we are hoping to defend that title on the home course in Derby”.

The national championships are being organised by the experienced team from Derby Cyclo-cross and will take place over the weekend of 8th and 9th of January 2011. Derby Cyclo-cross is an amalgam of cyclo-cross enthusiasts across several Derbyshire clubs – Derby Mercury CC, South Pennine RC, Heanor Clarion CC and empella/cyclo-cross.com RT.
