Capital cyclists will be looking to end their season on a high note when the final Scottish titles of 2012 come up for grabs at the Cyclocross Championships at Strathclyde Park near Motherwell on Sunday.

James McCallum, a Commonwealth Games medallist on the track in 2006, will be keen to show his versatility by triumphing in the mud against a strong field. Highlander Kenta Gallagher and Borderer Grant Ferguson, both members of the British Cycling Academy in Manchester, will start as favourites, in a race that features Edinburgh’s David Lines. Fifer Eileen Roe defends the women’s title while a clutch of rising stars, including a strong representation from Edinburgh Road Club, will contest the younger age group categories.
