The Sally Anna Low Memorial Road Race is a regular fixture in the Scottish women's racing calendar – and is also the final round of the Scottish National Women’s Road Race Series. With 27 talented women entered it's sure to be an aggressive race, with many riders keen to test their legs in this late season event.
