This weekend sees the Scottish CX world descending on the Ayrshire coast for the National CX Championships. Hosted by Walkers Cycling Club, and featuring a tweaked course (which Neil Walker described as riding pretty fast a week or so ago after heavy rain), the race will see stacked fields across all categories. To get you fired up, we’ve highlighted a few links below.

  1. Scottish Cycling have featured the riders to watch in a preview on their website.
  2. The Dig In Cross Report also has a quick look at the contenders in their latest round up of Scottish CX happenings, while the main focus is Raleigh SCX Series Race at Lochore Meadows and last weekend’s mudbath at Plean.
  3. Speaking of Dig In - here’s a classic blast from the past.
  4. Jim Cameron interviewed Neil Walker (course designer and tipped by many for a potential podium spot) over at albannach.cc.
  5. Finally, here’s some footage from last year’s SCX Series Senior Open race won by Grant Ferguson (Betch.NL-Superior-Brentjens MTB Racing Team) from Rab Wardell who makes his return to the Scottish CX scene this weekend.
