West region XC mountain bikers! Many of you took part in our dirt crit series last year and we’re hoping to see plenty of you take your skills and experience from there into this year’s SXC series. Six rounds at great venues spread across the country, the Scottish XC series provides a great focus for any rider looking to progress their XC mountain bike racing.
We’d like to offer current youth A, B and C riders (age 11+) interested in competing in this year’s SXC series some regular XC race coaching sessions as part of a SC West regional group. The plan is to hold a weekly Monday night session at Cathkin Braes (once there’s enough light in the evenings) led by MTB coaches from SC West clubs.
The clocks don’t go back for a couple of weeks though, and SXC round 1 takes place before then, so to kick things off the first session will be held at 3pm this Saturday (March 19) up at Cathkin Braes.
Meet at the car park at the top at 2.45 for sign-on, wheels rolling for 3, session end at 5. Session cost £2. Please note Cathkin Braes does not currently have WC facilities on site. Please remember to bring helmet, gloves, spare tubes, food, drink etc.
Any rider who wishes to come along, please notify your club coach in advance to book your place and also complete and return (or bring along) a consent form.
