Scottish cycling stars will come head to head at this year’s ScottishPower Renewables SuP6R Six Series, Scotland’s premier road race event, which kicks off on Saturday 7 March.
The SuP6R Six Series operates a points system, with winners announced at each of the race days: the overall winner will be presented with a jersey following the final race at Wanlockhead. With the average length of the races as 100km, and with riders reaching speeds of up to 60kph, spectators can enjoy a well fought battle for the winner’s jersey.
Round One of the series takes place on Saturday 7 March in Gifford for the Field and Lawn GP. Fife hosts Round Two of the competition with the Callum Macgregor Memorial on Sunday 5 April. Round Three takes place in Milngavie, the Sam Robinson Memorial on Sunday 3 May, and Round Four, Tour of the Wang, in West Calder on Sunday 7 June. A new event is taking place in Aberdeen this year on Saturday 4 July and Round Six, Tour of the Lowther, will held in Wanlockhead on Saturday 5 September.
“This is an exciting time for cycling in Scotland,” says Chief Executive of Scottish Cycling Jackie Davidson, “following the successes of Chris Hoy over the last year, and we hope that riders and spectators make the most of what promises to be a great series. We have seen some real talent emerging and we are looking forward to people of all ages, especially the younger riders, showcasing their skills at each of the events.”
“We’re delighted to continue our support of the SuP6R Six Series and we are looking forward to an exciting six months of cycling. It is events such as this that gives young Scottish talent the platform to develop in a competitive environment, with the support of Scottish Cycling behind them. It will be interesting to see which rider is crowned as the winner of the Series,” adds Keith Anderson, director of ScottishPower Renewables, sponsors of the SuP6R Six Series.
