Round 1 report:
On Saturday Round 1 of the Scottish Cycling Women's Road Race Series, supported by Dales Cycles took place in Glasgow, organised by Glasgow Green Cycling Club.
Strong winds, snow and hail showers didn't deter 29 women taking to the start line. Attacks came from Karena O’Hanlon (Leslie Bike Shop) and Lynsey Curran (Dooleys) but they were brought back. After 32 miles there was a bunch sprint. Track rider Flora Gillies (Project 51) took the win from Emily Middleditch (Deeside Thistle CC) and time trial specialist Lynsey Curran (Dooleys) in her first ever road race.
