Scottish Cyclocross Championships

There's now just a little over a month to go until  Deeside Thistle CC  host the Scottish Cyclocross Championship at  Knockburn Sports Loch  in Aberdeenshire on 7th December.

Make sure you keep up-to-date with latest news from #knocxburn by Liking the Facebook Event Page.

Online entry is open, but remember that as it's a Scottish Championship race, entry closes earlier than normal at midnight on Sunday 23rd November. In line with Scottish Cycling's rules, there will be no entry-on-the-day for any categories.





Scottish Cycling have eased the requirements for taking part in the Scottish Cyclocross Championships and unlike recent seasons, you will be able to race even if you do not meet the requirements to challenge for championship medals.

The Scottish Cyclocross Association would like to thank Scottish Cycling for this rule change.
