Name: Bruce Croall

Primary Club: City of Edinburgh Racing Club


I started life racing at the age of 14 doing cross country mountain biking and won my first Scottish Championship medal (silver) in 1994 riding in the colours of Pentland RT. I then went on to ride for Penicuik Racing Team, Sandy Wallace Race Team and Edinburgh Road Club racing at mountain bike and road events.

Since 2006 I have raced for the world famous track cycling club - City of Edinburgh Racing Club, and have concentrated on the short distance events such as Kilo TT, Sprint and Team Sprint.

I am looking to ride my first Commonwealth Games at Glasgow 2014.

Career Highlights to date:

Breaking the Sir Chris Hoy Kilo TT record at Meadowbank last year....it’s taken a few attempts!
