Melanie and Olivia took first and second place in the U14 girls while Arabella placed second in the U16 girls. Two Deeside boys rode in the Race the Stars floodlight event which took place on Saturday evening.
Scottish Youth Crit Champs
DTCC youths were on fantastic form today at the Scottish Youth Crit Championships in Fife, with the girls taking the Scottish Jerseys in all three age categories (U16, U14 and U12) – an amazing achievement. Alongside other results from the day this meant that DTCC took 6 out of the 18 medals available in the day.

DTCC Knockburn Loch CX – 7/11/21
In 2019 the course had to be shortened on the day due to ice, this year we plan to use a course very similar to the full planned 2019 course.
Race categories and timings will be similar to the Scottish Championships the following weekend, so a chance for a trial run of race day. Advertised start times are not finalised, confirmed schedule will come in the race manual.
Parking will be in the field next to Knockburn, parking here overnight into Sunday will be possible but there will be no facilities.
U12 races will be run on a separate course to the main course. There is an option when entering to select U8/U10/U12 and boys/girls. The plan is to run separate races for these categories as much as time and helpers allow.
Reqired help on Saturday for Course build from 10AM.
Required help for marshalling, sign on and other roles during all or part of the Sunday 9am -4pm.
This is a great day to volunteer just to see this race in action!
please contact email@example.com to get your name down to help.

School Games and DTCC Youth
DTCC Youth feature strongly in Scottish Cycling’s School Games Team with Arabella Blackburn, Evie White and Elliot Rowe being selected as part of a strong team of 13 riders. Their strong performances, dedication to training and personal qualities have all been taken into account when Scottish Cycling selected a team. Well done to DTCC Youth for getting three riders into the team – no mean feat! We wish them the best of luck in September and look forward to hearing from them after the event. In the meantime there is training for them to do…..
