Report: Snowdon Sports

Evan Oliphant (Team Raleigh) recorded yet another win as he raced clear of the field to take victory in the Scottish Circuit Race Championship.

The race was held at the Royal Highland Showground at Ingliston and as featured races for seniors, women and various youth categories.

Oliphant, 31, is in top form at the moment and before winning the Ayrshire Alps Classic a couple of weeks ago had finished overall winner of the Premier Calendar.

He was in irresistible form again here, riding out from the bunch and opening a gap of 24 seconds over Scott McCrossan (Rock to Roll Cycles Ltd) by the time he reached the finish. James McCallum (Rapha Condor JLT) was third.

“I knew I had good form at the moment, so I went there pretty confident that I could win,” said Oliphant. “I’m gearing up for the Tour of Britain at the moment, and this really helped me.

“I was away on my own for the second half of the race. It was really windy and I think less than half the field actually finished. I attacked about half way through and got a gap, and I think it was about 30-40 seconds by the end.”

In the women’s race it was Katie Archibald (City of Edinburgh RC) who beat Louise Borthwick (Edinburgh RC) to the line and Graeme Cross (The was top of the category four riders.
