Ten Years at Glengorm with Davie Graham

Next weekend we celebrate ten years at Glengorm, for Cross at the Castle. It’s a special race for me; not only is it my ‘homegame’, it’s also were I properly caught the ‘cross bug in 2009. This year I’ll be back, with a MAJESTIC of #unicrois to celebrate then end of the SCX Series and […]

SCX4 – Madness in the Meedies

Being a Fifer, the opportunity to return to the beautiful Kingdom was something I was highly looking forward to in the run up to the SCX4 – Meedies Madness at Lochore. True to my form of late, my preparation was last minute and I managed to get my entry in just 10 minutes before the […]

The Champs with Neil Walker

With just over one week until we hit the sand pits at Irvine Beach [#joksijde] where this year Walkers CC host the Scottish Cyclocross Championships.

SCX2 – The Veganbus is coming

SCX2 this year returned to the 2015 Scottish Championships venue at Knockburn Loch, a race I was really excited about coming back to since my debut there in 2014 (and after missing last years event). By all accounts the 2015 champs course was a big improvement on the 2014 edition; an edition which I rated as one […]

Double dCROIS

Earlier this year one of my best pals, Eoghan Maguire and I decided it was time for an ‘cross bike upgrade. Magsy had been stomping along to decent results on his Ridley X-Bow for the past few seasons all the while admiring the comparatively lightweight machine I’d been chasing him on (and even on the rare occasion beating him […]
