Summer Cyclocross presented by Ronde Bicycle Outfitters
HAUGHxCROSS is back (and so is the WHISKY) with what is Scotland’s original summer Cross event, promising to bring this years event to a whole new level of alternative cyclocross competition and racing fun.
Spectators can enjoy racing of all abilities, from the best in the country to absolute beginners. The race will draw in top riders from across the region; race format will consist of two separate races across the day – the first race, The Wee Dram (B race) for those who perhaps dont have the legs on the day or are trying cyclocross for the first time, with The Big Dram (A race) set to offer up the usual cyclocross shenanigans for the more seasoned participants on Saturday evening.
Following the cyclocross a Family Ceilidh will take place in the Festival Marquee. Entry for spectators is FREE but all donations towards the costs for this exceptional event will be gratefully received. We’ll have our beer tent serving the area’s finest local brews, BBQ and other suitably heart-warming fare.
Race commentators will battle to make themselves heard over the ding-a-ling of cowbells – spot prizes will be presented to the noisiest supporters.
- The race format will be open to both men and women, 16 years and over - the relevant age entrant is as you are on the 4th August 2018.
