The second race of the BDO Malta Cross Country National Point Series is set to continue on Sunday 19th March in Mġarr.

Whilst the first race in Miżieb saw cyclists having to contend with a muddy playground, the next race will probably see cyclists having to tackle quite a dusty track following the recent dry spell.

The 4.5km Mgarr circuit offers cyclists a breathtakingly scenic coastal ridge characterised by rough and rocky terrain and a few hair raising technical drops with the unique Gnejna as a backdrop.

As was the case for the first race, cyclists will be split into five Categories – Elite – 6 laps, Ladies, Open, Masters – (4 laps) and Juniors – (3 laps).  A number of foreign cyclists are expected to join the fold on Sunday. The Race will start at 8:00am sharp and the first finishers are expected to cross the line at around 9:15am.

The 2017 Cross Country Series is being supported by BDO Malta and by Magri Cycles, Carm & Co Ltd (SIS products) and Island Beverages (H20nly).
