British Cycling are pleased to announce that the 2015 British Cycling Youth National Circuit Race Championships has been awarded to Paisley, the first time Scotland has hosted the championships.
The venue has previously been used for the Scottish Crit Champs and is based on a town centre route through Paisley Cross and around the periphery of the outstanding Abbey and Town Hall.
Renfrewshire council leader Mark Macmillan said: "We are delighted to be able to bring this prestigious sporting event to Renfrewshire. We have a vibrant cycling scene locally and I am sure cycling fans from Renfrewshire and beyond will be thrilled to get the chance to see the sport's stars of tomorrow compete up close.
“Renfrewshire is fast gaining a reputation as a venue for top-class events and I am sure the historic town centre of Paisley will provide a striking backdrop to the excitement on the roads."
Organiser, Kenny Steele of the Johnstone Wheelers Cycling Club said: “It is fantastic to bring the British Cycling National Youth Championships to Paisley Town Centre.
“There are over 200 members of Youth Cycling Clubs within a five-mile radius of the circuit and it’s testament to the growth of cycling in the area that Renfrewshire Council has continued with their commitment to bringing high level racing to the town. The organising group of Paisley 2015 look forward to welcoming all to Paisley in July.
The event website www.paisley2015.org will go live in January 2015.
The event will be listed on the British Cycling website in January 2015.
