Events to watch

Para-cycling road time trials

The first para-cycling road events get underway in Dumfries and Galloway with athletes tackling a variety of challenging courses, utilising the latest technology in aerodynamics and raw human power to make around the course in the fastest time. With 14 rainbow jerseys up for grabs throughout the day, every second counts.

Men under 23 TT

We look to the next generation of stars as the men’s under 23 ITT sets out on a loop from Stirling on the technical 36km course. Over 240m of elevation greets the riders in a backloaded course putting pressure on already tired legs, expect to see champions here featuring on future world tour podiums.

We reach the climax of proceedings at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome as our final athletes take to the track in search of the remaining 4 rainbow jerseys. We’re straight into the action this evening with the women’s omnium featuring throughout the night as competitors fight it out ahead of the points race at the end of the evening.

Before that though, we’ve still got the men’s keirin, points race and women’s sprint to come, with British hopefuls across the board. This is an evening you will not want to miss.  


Another day, another new event. If you’ve not watched trial biking, you’re in for a treat. After all the speed this week, now it is time for the agility and technical skill focused riders to come to the fore.

Looking for the cleanest runs up, over and around a purpose-built course, nothing but perfection will do in Glasgow Green.
