The latest Dig In Cross Report is now online and it's a belter. No art-school barriers, no cancelled racing, just a classic mudfest at Strathclyde Park raced in brutal conditions. Cameras were very probably harmed in the making of this, the sixth crowd-sourced roundup of Scottish CX action narrated and edited by David Hamill.
Race Report: Raleigh SCX 3 - Strathclyde Park
I was thinking we had reached peak ’cross at Callender Park, I was wrong. It seems that cyclocross in Scotland is still growing with a massive field of over 600 entries at Strathclyde Park. Guto, Michael and the rest of the East Kilbride organisers surpassed themselves in putting on a great day’s racing with such large numbers.

Race Report: SCX3 - Strathclyde Park
Strathclyde Park is perhaps the series' most varied course characterised by fast whin dust paths, a big glaury, rooty hole, loads of muddy meadow marching and a starting/finishing section on a surface so poor that even Beirut toon council would be embarrassed.
