This Sunday: the Scottish Road Race Championships 2011


Balfron in Stirlingshire will host Vortex RT’s promotion of the Scottish Road Race Championships 2011 on Sunday 22nd May.

This year’s event will be based on a challenging circuit of approx 11km, which will have a race run on it for the first time.

As tradition demands, the ladies go first, and their race will be 67km long, six full laps of the circuit starting at 9:30am.

The men’s race will start shortly after the ladies finish, around 12:30pm, and will continue on in the afternoon, completing 12 gruelling laps of the circuit for a total distance of 132km.

Some of the local roads have recently been in a very poor condition, but Stirling Council have done a great job over the past few weeks by resurfacing a large section of the course and filling in a number of potholes, aware that the Scottish National Championships and the cream of Scottish road race talent were going to be testing the course to the limit.
