After a record breaking start to the 2009 Scottish Cyclocross Series at Plean near Stirling, racing resumes this Sunday 18th October, with Round 2 at Auchentoshan, Glasgow.
The course at Auchentoshan is an absolute classic and favourite of many a ‘crosser. It offers up a healthy mix of fast, flowing woodland singletrack, pavement, grass cheeky off camber sections and obligatory barriers, not forgetting a super steep (but thankfully short) run up. The course flows beautifully and with fair weather forecast for the weekend, the going will likely be firm and racing fast and furious. Davie Graham and promoting club Glasgow United have put together a sneak preview of the course (in most un-cross like conditions!) – watch it here.
Racing starts at 11am with the Youths race, followed by the Seniors/Womens/Vets/Juniors Race at 12pm and U12’s races at 1.15pm (or there about). Entry is available on the day and is a veritable bargain at £4 for Youths, £8 for the main race and free for U12’s. The Scottish Cyclocross Shop will also be in attendance, with an assortment of fine on and off the bike attire.

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
