Scottish National Alba Series 2018 #1

The Drummond Trophy, Sunday, 15 April 2018

Organising Club: Glenmarnock Wheelers CC

Forming the first race of the Scottish Cycling Alba Series, the Drummond Trophy is one of Scotland’s major annual road races which Glenmarnock Wheelers CC has run for over 50 years. It is famously cited as one of the Scottish Monuments, and at 85 Miles in distance and 5000ft of climbing the seven lap course is seriously tough.

The Drummond Trophy is one of - if not the - longest running road race in Scotland. With Elite riders from some of the big UK teams up against the best local Cat 1/2/3 talent. Top riders include Richard Jones and Jack Rees from Ribble Cycling, along with Martin Lonie and Jason Roberts from Nuun-Sigma Sports London and Pro Vision Scotland. Can Sean Gordon of EKRC go one place better than his second place in 2017 to take the victory in 2018?" - Kevin Duffy, Event Organiser

Roll out for the riders is from the Sainsbury’s car park in Strathaven at 11:00am..
