Schools xcm series

School Cycling SA (SCSA) has joined hands with the Ford Trailseeker Series to introduce the School Cycling SA Introductory Cross Country Marathon (XCM) Series that  forms part of the King Price Trailseeker Series.

School learners will be able to proudly represent their respective schools and earn valuable points for their school. At the end of the series, the top:

  • Boys Team
  • Girls Team
  • Mixed Team and
  • Overall School Team

for primary and high schools respectively will be announced.

We feel that this is an amazing platform to invest in our kids’ cycling abilities and boost the sport of cycling at school level. This is where our kids learn to race their bikes and handle themselves in sometimes unpredictable situations. We are proud of investing in  the future of SA cycling. 

Parents are, of course, welcome to join in but will not be allowed to interfere with the racing in any way.

Have a great ride out there!

And remember, if you’re breathing, you know you’re alive.

If you’re breathing hard, you know you are living!
