Race Website

The 2007 Ingliston Criterium Series sponsored by Cycling Scotland kicks off on Thursday 12 April at the Royal Highland Showground just west of Edinburgh. Now in its 9th season and this year expanded to 6 events, the series is expected to attract many of Scotlandís top elite, women and junior riders. Established professional riders such as Alex Coutts, Evan Oliphant, Jack Woodward and last yearís Premier Series winner Gary Hand have cut their teeth at these events before going on to bigger things. In the female category, British team members Jo Cavill and Kate Cullen (Commonwealth Games Bronze medallist) have also been frequent entrants.

The successful formula for the series events which regularly attract fields of around 90 riders, is the same as in previous years with entry on the line only. A new development for this series is to hold two events on Saturdays. The first of these on 28 April will feature a womenís only race. The final round on Saturday 26 May will host the Scottish Youth Criterium Championships. The other rounds will be held on Thursdays April 12, and 19 and May 3 and 10, starting at 18.30 

The series which is promoted by Edinburgh RC-The Bicycleworks/Hilton Edinburgh Grosvenor offers a prize fund valued around £1000. In addition to the main sponsor, Cycling Scotland, support has been provided by Pedal power, ISO, and David Banns Restaurant.  

Spectators and people interested in taking up cycle racing are welcome at the events. Admission is free.
