2017 Squirrel Cross
Promoted by: Portage Cycling
Summary: This fantastic event welcomes new, old, shabby and chic riders to race in this beautiful park in the heart of Dunfermline. The event organisers have joined forces to bring their love of cycling, cross and great events to come up with the perfect SquirrelCross day that you’ll go nuts for!
Affectionately named after the locals who hang out in the park the organisers plan to offer a superb course with challenges and features to keep the best riders on their toes and the worst dropping their nuts!
There will be a women’s race, men’s race and children’s races (in assocation with the Carnegie Cyclones). Also thrown in is a range of random spot prizes and there will be a raffle open to all entries, so first or last you are in with a shout for a prize.
The 1.2km grass, tarmac and woodland route is all packed into one part of the park making sure that all our nutty fans can spectate the whole race whilst sunning themelves on the lawn listening to the dulcent tones of the commentators.
The aim of the organisers is to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where newbies will feel at ease getting their first taste of cross racing. Special shout outs will go to anyone new to cross racing (if you want!) and the hope is seasoned cross racers will gently show the rest how it’s done.
While the aim is to attract new folks, don’t let this put you off it you are a cross warrior! The route offers you the usual portage challenges and features, technically offering you a nutty work out if you want it! Easy won’t be the word you’ll be using to describe it!
