Cheltenham is nice – good view of the race course from the XC..! Good, straightforward courses although runs very close to a steam train railway at the start and you also go down a dip through the woods after the second and that seems to cause a few probs for some with sudden slamming on of the breaks causing riders to go shooting out the front door. Also, there is no water.

The ground has a reputation for being hard but the course builder assures me that they do everything possible to improve the going each year

There is no water BUT there is a steep slope in a dark area and then you have to jump ditch with water in, so lots of PC kicks could be required

Ground can be very hard, but last year they did dress take offs and landings
