Scottish National Omnium Championships

Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, Glasgow

Saturday 9th February 2019

The 2019 Scottish National Championships will kick off this Saturday with the third edition of the Scottish National Omnium Championship at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome.

A huge thank you to Event Organiser Tom Forbes and the Scottish Cycling National Track League Organising Committee who, like all our organisers, have done a power of work behind the scenes to put the event together. A strong field looks set to contest the open category, with teams Bioracer- Moriarty Bikes, Spokes Racing Team and Edinburgh RC well respresented. 2018 National Champion in the open category, Kyle Gordon will be riding to defend his title after a strong showing at the National Track Championships in Manchester a few weeks ago. Meanwhile reigning womens champion Ellen McDermott won't be present, leaving the race wide open.

Racing commences at 1pm.

Scottish Cycling are pleased to announce that 5311 Media will be covering our championships for the 2019 season. We look forward to enjoying their images and reports.
