Christmas is just around the corner and with it West Lothian Clarion will be holding our 9th Annual Santa Cyclocross event!
The race has grown over the years into probably the best main club event, with loads of our youth and adult club riders taking part. Last year was our biggest ever turn out from the club and this year we would like to see even more club riders taking part. This is a fun grassroots event designed to give everyone a chance to race their bikes in a fun safe environment. The focus is on fun and enjoying being out on the bike with your friends and having a big smile on your face. This race is ideal for those new to the sport or want to try it out. You can use any bike you want. The race is known for its participants embracing the festive spirit and turning out in some great Christmas themed fancy dress and bike dressing. Fancy dress is totally optional. All outfits and bike dressing must be safe to the rider and other competitor. The race can be entered solo or as a pair and is open to both first and second claim members. For those newer to the sport there is a pairs race where teams of two riders can take part in the race in a relay fashion.
Solo entry is £5. Pairs entry will be £8. All adult riders entering the solo race need to be first claim members of the West Lothian Clarion to win the CX championship. For all adult race entrants a valid British Cycling race licence must be presented on the day. If you don’t have one a day race licence can be purchased for £3.
If your planning to race please let us know here, the Forum or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can pre-load our timekeeping app.
Before the adult race our younger youth members will be racing. Please come along before the race and cheer them on and see how they handle the course.
All riders will be gridded before the race, gridding positions will be based on a variety of factors which may or not include previous results. Fancy Dress may effect grid placing. There will be a food stall serving hot drinks and home baking. There is also a café in the leisure centre too. If you are entering the leisure centre please wear shoe covers or take your muddy shoes off. Race timings will be added nearer the day of the event.
