For our British and Scottish readers – or those interested in exploring new cyclocross scenes, both the Scottish Cyclocross (SCX) and UK Cyclocross (UKCX) Series have confirmed dates for the 2010/2011 season. While the UK calendar extends right up until Worlds, the Scottish community faces a similar debate that has been going on for a long time in America: whether to match the European cyclocross hotbeds and continue to race past mid-December.

Here are the calendars as they stand, with additional dates still likely.
