150 riders set for Scottish Cycling’s top event

Scottish Cycling’s most prestigious event, the Scottish National Senior Track Championships, takes place at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, Glasgow, from November 11-13, with nearly 150 riders battling it out for glory in 85 races.

The event incorporates the Madison Championships, and will see 22 new Scottish Champions crowned by the end of the weekend.

The winners will then be invited along to Scottish Cycling’s Roll of Honour event on 26th November 26 where their achievement will be recognised.

As the popularity of cycling continues to soar, you can catch the action for just £2.

Sarah Macintyre, Scottish Cycling National Event Officer for Road, Track and Time Trial said: “The Scottish National Senior Track Championships is a flagship event on our calendar and we are delighted to have such a full and varied schedule across the weekend.

“We wanted to make sure we could offer racing for all senior categories, including opportunities for tandem riders. We have also chosen to incorporate the Madison championships too. We look forward to an enjoyable weekend of racing – bring along your family and friends to support you.”

One rider missing out will be Olympic gold winner Katie Archibald, after her crash at the UCI Track World Cup which left her arm in plaster but still saw her get back on her bike and take Gold in the Women’s Madison with Manon Lloyd.
