We are running an event on Saturday the 30 August (again at Nether Pollock) It will involve the same 3 skills bases and an age group race afterwards – it will be the 1st round of a small race series that we have agreed to run with 3 other clubs.

The club will not run on the 30th August because of this event but it would be great if you child could take part and support the event, the cost is £6 and you enter via the following link. Brief detail below – full details onthe British Cycling Page here.

Combined Skills Dirt Crit 30th August 2014

To make our event a bit different we will run it as a “Combined MTB Skills” event. This means that before the XC race each rider will take part in a skills demonstration.


The idea behind these events is that points accrued in the skills section lead to some kind of advantage or handicap in the race section.

There will be 3 skills courses to allow the difficulty to be tailored to the relevant age groups.

Likewise the XC race course will have more difficult extensions for the older age groups.
