Walkers Cycling Club are hosting a round of the UK Cyclocross National Trophy Series – the first time the event has come north to Scotland.

The Kilmaurs-based club will stage the second leg of the six-round competition at Irvine Beach Park on Saturday October 27th and Sunday October 28th.

Eleven years of hard work from loads of volunteers at Walkers Cycling Club has paid off.

Irvine is the only course in Scotland with a mix of rolling grassy hills and tricky sand stretches side by side and next to the sea. It’s a superb venue for cyclocross.

Messages of congratulations have poured in from the Scottish cyclocross community who are delighted to see the high-profile national event heading over the border.

Morven Brown, Scottish Cycling’s National Events Officer, said, “It is really exciting that Walkers Cycling Club has secured a round of the HSBC UK National Trophy Cyclocross series at Irvine.

“The course is one of the classics on the Scottish calendar, and the organising team from Walkers CC has put in a great deal of effort to develop features to National Trophy standard. With the average rider entry at Scottish cyclocross races being over 500, the sport of cyclocross in Scotland is in a very strong position.”

The 2018/19 HSBC UK Cyclo-cross National Trophy Series runs from October to January. Dates and venues are: Round one, 6-7 October, Moorways, Derby; Round two, 27-28 October, Beach Park, Irvine; Round three, 10-11 November, South of England Event Centre, Crawley; Round four, 24-25 November, York Cycle Sport, York; Round five, 8-9 December, Trinity Park, Ipswich; Round six, 5-6 January, Shrewsbury Sports Centre, Shrewsbury.
