Race Report: Scottish CX Champs/Raleigh SCX5 - Irvine

It couldn't have been better.  With the rest of the country seemingly under water and grinding to a halt, the organisers at Irvine put on a cracker of a course and some fantastic racing.  High winds, heavy rain and biting cold were minor distractions to the riders tackling the big dipper, sand pits, steep run-ups and off-camber sections.  The course was so well judged that all sections were ridable but only if you were skilled enough.  Sheer power was not enough to get a result - finesse, chutspah and careful choice of tyre pressures were required as well.
