In 2011 the club promoted the Haldon Evening Series comprising three cross country (XC) mountain bike races using the cycle trails at Haldon Forest, near Exeter. The success of the series has encouraged us to join together with other organisations and individuals in the local area to organise the 2XC 2012 race series.
