As was the case in 2023, Kinneil CX will get the season underway in September, before trips north to Muir of Ord, and Brechin in October. Sticking with the East coast, round four of the series sees the ever-popular Camperdown Country Park included once again having hosted the national championships in 2022 and 2023, before a trip to a new venue – Chatelherault Country Park in Hamilton – before Irvine brings the curtain down.

Once again, the SCX Series, the pinnacle of ‘cross racing in Scotland, is laid out to support those travelling to compete at the British CX Trophies, encouraging regional and grassroots racing on these weekends, ensuring there are racing opportunities for everyone.
