Battle of Balloch Castle CX

Promoted by: Glasgow United CC

Summary: Here’s what the organisers have to say:

THE BATTLE OF BALLOCH CASTLE CX 2016 – We can scarcely believe we’re STILL allowed to give you quite possibly Scotland’s most beautiful CX course. Take a walk around the park the views are stunning, visit the Slipway Cafe just 50yds from the sign on tent on the banks of the loch. Bring the family, spend a bit of time here and maybe visit Loch Lomond Shores for a bit of shopping as well as it’s only next door.

It’s a brand new modern style course on the banks of Loch Lomond at Balloch Castle Country Park. Last years debut found wide praise for the course, the main comment being just how fast it is! So, this year the course will be the same but we may add the “Castle assault loop” if ground conditions on the day allow. This will be an extra climb, off-camber and descent before the finish line just to give a wee extra twist and boost the lap time a little which for a relatively long 2.1km lap was still a tad short.

This is a TLi event, format will be an A race and B race both open to all categories age 16 and over, so all categories race together including Juniors (the Juniors only appear as a separate race category because you are entitled to a free TLi day licence so your price differs from the over 18 riders). If you’d prefer a very fast race enter the A race, if you’d rather it was only a fast race then enter the B race 🙂 Both races will be limited to 100 riders for safety reasons and the start sheet will be given a once over before we start for any obvious “ringers”, you have been warned!!”
