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.
