SXC round 3 at Cathkin Braes

Hi All,

Just a quick note about the Scottish XC MTB race that was held at Cathkin Braes, the site for the 2014 Commonwealth Games XC MTB race.

Weather was rubbish, pouring with rain all day, but meant we got super muddy :D

I had had a nightmare in practice the day before with mechanical issues, ended up racing with just 9 gears :oops:

Managed 3 laps of the race before I had to pull out due to an injury sustained the day before.

All in all its a cracking track, different to anything I have ridden before, completely man made, they still have a bit of work to do before the track is ready for the Games, but this was the first race that was held here so you have to expect teething problems.

her is a little vid, yours truly features, looking slightly the worst for wear at 3 mins in.
