The highly sought-after Scottish National Road Race Championship titles are wide open this year with 28 women and 79 men gearing up for the championship which takes place this Sunday (20th August.)
The event, organised and promoted by Spokes Cycles and Limits Power Meters, will take place in Kennoway in Fife – not only incorporating the Men’s and Women’s Championship but also offering an open race for category 3, 4 and Junior riders.
Evan Oliphant (who was riding for Raleigh GAC) and Eileen Roe (who was riding for ‘Lares-Waowdeals) will not be riding to defend their titles this year after their spectacular finishes in West Calder in 2016, and therefore the top spot is all to play for.
The Championship events, which are part of the David Campbell Development and Memorial Races, are also part of the Team Scotland Series this year; a series which incorporates Scottish Championships from across a variety of sports. You can find out more about it here.
The Senior Women’s race starts with a neutralised roll out at 11.10 am at Kennoway Primary School before racing begins at Bonnybank, taking in four laps of a 10 mile circuit before cutting off for a finish in Langside, estimated at around 1.20 pm.
The Senior Men’s race starts shortly after from Kennoway Primary School at 2 pm – taking in eight laps of the circuit before cutting off to cross the finish line – a total of 84 miles – estimated to finish around 5.20 pm. Presentations will be held straight after each race at Kennoway Primary School.
Get yourself along to cheer on the riders, with spectators recommend to watch from Bonnybank Inn, Cults Hill and Porters Summit for the best chance of seeing the riders come by.
