Race Report

Posted 01/09/2013

Fourteen of Scotland’s top club teams battled “For The Shirt” on 1st September in Falkirk Bicycle Club’s annual Team Road Race. Granite City CC came out on top in what is Scotland’s only team based road race. Teams of six took to the challenging course contested over 6 laps with over 500 feet of climbing on each lap. A strong westerly wind added to the challenge and resulted in riders retiring as early as the first lap.

The main bunch began to disintegrate on lap one with  5 riders heading off the front on the initial climb. Three riders bridged the gap with Granite City, Moray Firth and GJS/Cruise Racing all having 2 riders in the break. By the half-way point the break had established a lead of over 1 minute Craig Wallace of Granite City CC attacked the lead group establishing a narrow lead which he increased by the finish to win by 54 seconds over a chasing group of 7.

A collision on the fastest part of the course forced a late diversion sparing the riders the final climb to Limerigg. With the climbs and the wind taking it’s toll the main bunch was reduced to 11 riders with small groups forming as they battled for the team points.

Granite City and Moray Firth benefitted from having 2 riders in the lead group with GJS/Cruise Racing, despite losing their second  rider from the lead group making it a three way contest. In the end Granite City came out on top with GJS/Cruise Racing 8 points behind and Moray Firth taking third spot a further 5 points behind.

On a human note it was gratifying to see riders stopping and giving assistance to fellow riders who crashed out during the race. Those who did should be commended for putting the welfare of others before their own result.
