Preview: the South Carrick David Bell Memorial Road Race


It might be the middle of crit season, but the organisers of this Sunday’s South Carrick David Bell Memorial in Girvan are delighted to have secured the strongest lineup in the race’s history.

Felix English heads a full Rapha-Condor-Sharp team against Ben Greenwoods’ Vanillabikes.com team and Robbie Hassan’s Herbalife Leisure Lakes squad in the 100mile event.

The action kicks off in Girvan at 11am, where local school children will wave the riders off after a ceremonial lap of the Victory Park criteriums circuit. 100 miles of classic Ayrshire terrain including the ascents of Nic O Balloch, Glenalla, and the Screws serve as a main course before two nail-bitting laps of the Byne to please the spectators.
