Cycle tour of Scotland creates a stir

The first Women’s Cycle Tour of Scotland arrived in Brig o’ Turk today, and just as quickly left again, as around 90 cyclists tackled stage 2 of this new 350km road race. The day’s route covered almost 140km from Glasgow to Perth.

An international field of top-class competitors sped through the village shortly after tackling a gruelling climb over the Duke’s Pass. Arriving in Perth less than 3.5 hours after setting off from Glasgow, the stage winner was Alison Jackson of the US team Tibco-Silicon Valley Bank.

The race moves on to its 3rd and final stage on Sunday August 11 with a route of almost 120km from Edinburgh to the Borders and back. Find out more about the race at https://womenstourofscotland.com/.
