The racing season opens in March with our feared Hardriders event, posing a real test of a rider’s winter training efforts. Starting at Wroxton, competitors head north west, descending the notorious Sunrising Hill to Ettington where they then turn around and retrace the route to HQ, climbing back up the hill which is 17% at it’s steepest. The winner is presented with the Broughton Cup.
After a temporary lockdown move to a summer date in 2021, Hardriders 2023 will continue it’s early place in the racing calendar, being held on Sunday 19th March with the first rider off at 0801. The race HQ will once again be Wroxton Sports Club.
