It was a huge weekend of racing in Scotland, the 50 Mile TT National Championship, an Alba Series road race, and Scots producing amazing results at HSBC National Championships in Glencoe and Hadleigh Park.
Scottish Alba Series : The Tour of the Glens
The hilly course shattered the peloton early in the race with a break of three going up the road. The fragmented bunch managed to reel them back in, but eventually a group of four went clear and survived to the finish with William Corbett of Ribble Cycling taking the win. Of 41 starters only 22 riders finished, proving how challenging this course is.
1st William Corbett
2nd Finn Crockett
3rd Ruari Grant
