Hi all – i’ve posted the following on the SXC forum, but thought i’d post here for info –


Ok folks – 3 days to go, the course still has a little snow, but overall its dry and riding well 🙂

Re parking – postcode for this year is DD8 2LE. This is at the rear of the course, and should be much better than last year!

If dry, we are using a flat grass field adjacent to the course.
If wet, we are using the farm yard approx 200 yards further away.
The farmer has been very accomodating so please park sensibly, do not leave litter, wheelspin in the field etc!

Directions – coming from Dundee take the 1st turning off the dual carriageway into Forfar (signposted Arbroath!)then after approx 200 yards turn right (signposted Lour & Ladenford). Follow this road for approx 1 mile then take road on left (signposted Craignathro & Balmashanner). Stay on this road for approx 1 mile and you’ll come to the field/farm yard/start-finish area. Hopefully ‘fish’ will bring the SXC signs so nobody gets lost 🙂

We do not have the use of the field on the saturday, so please park sensibly if pre-riding the course!
