When September comes around, there’s always a flurry of race dates and venues announced and the SCX Race Calendar has now been updated with all the new info.
With three multi-race Series this year, as well as a number of stand-alone races, the racing calendar has never been fuller, or more geographically inclusive.
It all kicks off with the first round of the SCX Series at Bute next weekend, before two more SCX races and the Youth-only Inch Park get everybody fired up for Scotland’s first ever National Trophy at Irvine in late October. The SCX Series then takes a break, allowing the Superquaich and Scottish Cycling North Series to take advantage of peak-CX conditions through the deepest winter months.
As the daylight lengthens, thoughts will turn not to base miles, but a new look Mull Weekend, before the SCX and SC North Series conclude at the end of February.
It's going to be some season - best of luck to all the riders, volunteers and spectators who make the Scottish CX scene so special.
