– by Janette Hazlett – I rode round the course for the Tour de Trossachs 2009 time trial the other day – ouch… now I’m feeling just a little bit guilty that I make them race round it!

There were no crowds for me on the Duke’s Pass – and I was flying up it too, honest!

Tour de Trossachs 2009
Defending Champion Arthur Doyle is top seed tomorrow.

It’s a 10.00am start tomorrow,and it should be interesting battle, amongst the men and the women: an on-form Christine McLean, Sharon Doyle and Mari Todd are my predictions for the podium.

I’ve put the Juniors on just before some of the fast seniors and vets as I thought it might be good for them to be amongst the big boys — I’ve always felt they were a bit out of things being put off first.

Tour de Trossachs 2009
It’s Trossachs time again.

Dooleys look like the favourite for the team — it’s a shame Endura Racing couldn’t produce a third member, but I did try! It would have been a good “testers v roadies” battle – the course certainly has something for masters of both disciplines, and a few riders are venturing from down south which is good to see — hoping for more next year, when the race will be part of the Rudy Project series.

I have got two of the Ferrys riding — I also tried to get Andrew to enter to make up a team – next year I’m offering free entries to previous winners!
