British Cycling Press Release

The 2024 National Cyclo-cross Championships will be held in Scotland for the very first time, in Falkirk’s Callendar Park. The championships will take place over the weekend of 13-14 January, after the venue successfully hosted rounds of the National Trophy in each of the past two years. Home to the 14th century Callendar House, the park provides a stunning backdrop to the racing, with the challenging course quickly becoming a firm favourite of riders and spectators alike.

The championships comes at the end of National Trophy Series, which will be contested over six rounds and will all be on the UCI calendar as C2 events. Beginning in South Shields on the weekend of 7-8 October, after a successful debut event at Gypsies Green in 2022, the series will then move on to the North West (14-15 October) for round two, with the venue to be confirmed, before round three at Moorways in Derby two weeks later (28-29 October).

Riders will then return to Torbay Velopark on 11-12 November, after another successful debut in 2022, before the penultimate round at Cyclopark in Gravesend on 9-10 December. The series then concludes in the new year in Tong, Bradford from 6-7 January.

National Cyclo-cross Championships event organiser Fraser Johnston said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to host the 2023/24 National Cyclo-cross Championships, after hosting two years of thrilling rounds in the National Trophy Series. Callander Park is an exciting and technical course which is entertaining for both the riders and spectators. The past two editions have been heralded as great all-round challenges for the riders, and we hope to see strong fields joining us again in January. The course offers countless vantage points to take in the action, which makes it a great day out for all the family, and we look forward to yet again welcoming big crowds to Falkirk.”

The schedule for each round of the National Trophy Series will be changed for the 2023/24 series, switching the youth races to Sunday to prevent riders from missing school time when required to travel to events on a Friday. Full timetables, including race times, will follow over the summer. The revised weekend schedule can be found below.
