Bellahouston Spring Circuit Race
Location: Bellahouston Leisure Centre, Glasgow
Event: 9 March 2013
Report: Snowdon Sports
Scottish road race champion James McCallum (Rapha Condor JLT) led in a four-man front group to take the honours in wet and windswept conditions which saw the feature race cut from an hour to 45 minutes on the Bellahouston Park circuit in Glasgow.
McCallum, 33, who sandwiched the race between a 50-mile ride from and back to his Edinburgh home, got the better of Craig Adams (GJS Racing Team) and Andy Whitehall (Velo Ecosse) in the final sprint ahead of the fourth man in the break, Callum Wilkinson (Bicycle Works), with a gap of a minute to Douglas Shaw (Bicycle works) who distanced himself from the rest in the closing stages.
By contrast, riders in the supporting 40-minute race enjoyed dry weather with victory going to Scottish mountain bike squad junior Iain Paton (Ben Wyvis CC), who broke away towards the end to score an impressive solo win ahead of four chasers who included leading woman, Eileen Roe (Breast Cancer Care Team).
