Scottish Borders Under 18s XC

MTB XC , Selkirk – Friday, 08 Sep 2017

Event Summary

Event Overview

Fun Event:

On Friday the 8th there is a fun event for young children to have a shot of riding in a group. This is not a race with prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc. and parents may assist their riders around a scaled down XC course on ground suitable for small wheeled bikes although it will not be flat ground.

Championship Day.

Race entry is only available to those riders enrolled in a school within the local authority region of The Scottish Borders. These may be state or privately run schools. Races will be split by school year. Children that have been held back  year or who are in composite year groups will race in their school enrollment year. 

I.E. a P4/5 who would otherwise be in P5 will race P5 etc. unless dispensation is sought from the race organiser in advance.

This is a grass roots cross country event held at Bowhill House, near Selkirk. The trails will be a mix of park track and single track trail and riders will need to be confident riding in a group and on uneven ground. A bicycle in good working order will be required, it must have two working brakes and although gears are not essential the course has been designed for mountain bikes with 5 or more gears and includes relatively steep hills. For this reason, riders under primary 3 are not permitted.

Places for top 3 boys and girls in each year group will be awarded with trophies or prizes. Top girl and boy in each year group will be the Live Borders regional champion.

Points are awarded to all finishers within the top 3 in every race and the school with the most points wins the Scottish Borders XC Championship Trophy. There is one trophy for high school, currently held by Peebles High School and there is one trophy for primary schools, currently held by Priorsford Primary School.
