Meet Stuart Wilcox, yet another one of this batch of extremely fast Juniors that we've got here at the SXC. He's a friendly guy, who is always up for racing well and having some fun on his bike. He's been having a good, steady season this year in a very strong British field. Make sure you give him all the support you can, he is the one in theWhite, black and yellow of Team Scott - just look out for the blonde hair under the helmet to tell his apart from his teammate Nick Craig!. He'll be setting off at 3pm on the Sunday at Cathkin, giving him the chance to test his skills against the senior riders too.
Good luck Stuart!!
