The Coupar Angus Cycling Festival 2019 presents Coupar Cross - a day of cyclocross races for everyone.
Ridden a cyclocross race before? Or interested in trying your first one? We are running races for all ages and abilities throughout the day during the Coupar Angus Cycling Festival at Larghan Park.
What is cyclocross? Cyclocross races are off-road across grass, mud, woodland and sand - in this case - around Larghan Park. Races feature barriers and during an event, competitors will have to get off their bikes and carry them around obstacles. Cyclocross is getting more and more popular - give it a go and you might be hooked!

12pm - 12 & over Race

Info for Riders
This event is designed for everyone whether seasoned CX racer or complete newcomer to the discipline. Making use of the fantastic terrain of Camperdown Country Park there will be 3 separate races: a youth race; a 'taster' race for first timers; and an open race. Moutain Bikes are very welcome.
The focus of this local/regional event is on fun and sharing the cyclocross love. As such we will be operating a '1 bike rule' which means no spare bikes in the pits, nor jet washers and pit crews required.
South Lanarkshire leisure and culture are delighted to be hosting their annual Cyclo cross event which will be run in partnership with the Clydesdale Colts/Royal Albert cycling club.
The event will take place through the Beautiful trails of Chatelherault country park where the course will be challenging on both grass and trails with plenty of mud and exciting features.
The event will be aimed at Age 8 years + for all abilities.
