The 48th David Bell Memorial Road Race is the climax of the Ayrshire Alps Cycling Festival.

Christopher Jennings wins the 47th South Carrick David Bell Memorial in Victory Park, Girvan

Christopher Jennings wins the 47th South Carrick David Bell Memorial in Victory Park, Girvan

This will be a ‘National B‘ event run to a‘National A’ standard with a prize fund of over £1200, a full race convoy and the same high organisation standard the race has come to be known for!  The event is open to Elite, 1st, 2nd and 3rd category riders.

This is the race that every Scottish cyclist wants to win, with an incredibly rich history and formidable reputation.  With a mix of grueling terrain a top competition, this is not a race for the weak!

The 48th edition of the David Bell Memorial Race (The Ayrshire Alps Classic) will be run over an 81 mile course featuring the ascents of Carleton, the Screws and the Byne.  Based in and around Girvan, the race concludes with four laps of a circuit featuring the Byne and Assel Valley.

Known for being a hardman’s race, the 48th edition of the Davie Bell will not buck the trend with over 1000m of ascent.  However, gone are the steep pitches of the Nic O Balloch that favour the pure climbers so well.  Instead the steady gradients of the Byne will suit powerful riders who can handle the relentless pressure.

With the riders passing by Victory Park in Girvan six times this should make for a great spectator friendly race.  Add to that the beautiful opening gallop to Lendalfoot along the gorgeous South Carrick Coastline…  Look forward to the photos!
