Regional Series Info

These events offer a larger range of colour coded courses (including the usual yellow, orange, green, blue) and attract a wider group of people from different clubs. Seven colours are used with each representing a certain level of difficulty (both technical and physical). The darker the colour, the longer and harder the course. For cheaper prices and to ensure a map, pre-entry is recommended via Fabian 4.
