Late 2023 (New Beginnings)

With the departure of Morgan and Jaymi from running SouthernXC multiple meetings were held between James Watson ( AM Cycling ) and Adam Buckland ( Eventrex ) on how the series could continue in a sustainable manor, so a plan was created where the individual rounds would be set up and ran by individual race teams in the Southern region and overseen by Eventrex and AMCycling.
