Balfron was the place to be for road racing this weekend (well Italy for the Giro would have been good too !). Scotland’s top road racers were in action in the Scottish National Road Race Championship.

In the morning it was Kayleigh Brogan, City of Edinburgh RC who triumphed in a 6 woman sprint to take the Womans title, with Katy Winton, The Kinesis Morvelo Project and Natalie Milne, Alpine Bikes taking 2nd and 3rd.

In the afternoon with the sun still shining and the crowds increasing James McCallum, Rapha Condor Sharp and Evan Oliphant, Team Raligh-GAC finally broke away from the main group and managed to get a 34 second lead at the finish. The crowds were treated to an exciting sprint finish as the two riders battled it out for the Gold medal with James the eventual winner. Alistair Rutherford, came in 34 seconds later followed 12 seconds later by a group of 15 riders and another sprint finish this time won by Robbie Hassan, Harbalife, Leisure Lakes to take 4th.

Scottish Cycling would like to thank the Team at Vortex Racing team and all their helpers and sponsors for giving the riders a fantastic opportunity to race.
