New Website coming September 1st 2015




From September 1st, Scottish Cyclocross will have a brand new website. The site will host race previews and reports, interviews with folk from the Scottish scene, Series and Non Series Race Calendars and the SCX shop.
The new digital Service Course/Materialpost is at http://www.scottishcx.org.uk and the September 1st launch will see, amongst other things, entry links for all the SCX Series Races and the announcement of a big new sponsor for SCX. Currently there is a landing page featuring a photograph of David Lines at Foxlake by Anthony Robson.
Jim Cameron and I will be adding stuff gradually over the coming months, but one thing you'll notice is that the new site is a bit more user friendly (especially on mobile platforms). The design relies heavily on the fantastic photography of Anthony RobsonLauri Peil and Martin Young so a big thank you to them for kindly allowing SCX the use of their photographs. We also hope to feature race reports from Eric Easton, and hope that folk will continue to contribute reports, race announcements and photo galleries.
Social links on the site point to the Scottish CX email address, Twitter (@scottishcx) and the SCX Flickr Group. There is a contact form on the site as well, so any Q's regarding SCX can now be sent a bit more easily.
At present the current Blogger site will remain where it is. All the information has been ported to the new site, but formatting is a bit askew in places. We will review whether to retain the Blogger site or move wholescale to the new site in a month or two once any kinks have ironed out. For now, we will post to both sites until September 1st, and then all new posts will be on the new site only.
