ThunderCross

ThunderCross is back for its second year at Canada Heights Motocross track in Swanley, Kent.

The Course:
Each lap is just over 2km long over a mix of grass, gravel, tarmac and a bit of mud (weather depending). We've tweaked our course from last year adding a large field section at the back end of the course and removing the leg sapping climb that gave people nightmares! Check the map below for the lap layout and some of the features.

Food and Drink:
New for this year is the addition of beer from our friends at The Crafty Horse Bar who will be supplying some quality beers and other drinks to keep spectators and racers refreshed and hydrated through the day. We're hoping to confirm a hot food vendor soon.

Itinerary:
We will be on site from 10am when the car park will open for spectators and racers. There will be an open course from 11am for you to test the course and any obstacles we might throw at you. Then the racing will start from Midday.

The Open Race is up first. Track bike? Brompton? Tandem? Penny Farthing? No problem. This race is all about having as much fun on two wheels as possible. Dress up, dress down, don't bother getting dressed at all (🙈). Anything goes in this race and there will be prizes for outrageousness as well as those crossing the line first.

Then it's time for the main course. The Men's and Women's Cross races were hotly contested last year with some quality riders in the fields. It's the perfect race to close out your Cross season with or to prep for the SSCX European Championships.


Getting There:
You can find Canada Heights on Button Street in Swanley, just off the A20 between Farningham and Swanley. The postcode BR8 8DX gets most Sat Navs to the right entrance to the venue.


There are also trains running regularly from London Victoria or Waterloo to Swanley Station.

Fixed Beers Ride:
If you fancy cycling to the course from London then our friends at Fixed Beers will be leading a ride from Blackheath Gate at 9am down to Swanley in time for the fun to begin. More details can be here.
