Halfords Tour series starts in Kirkcaldy.
Series of 10 town centre crits, Tuesdays and Thursdays for 5 weeks in May/June. Televised on ITV4.
They’re really good events, you generally get a good atmosphere, lots of close up views of the racers, there’s often a chance to chat to one or two if that’s your thing – they’ll sign autographs etc. Canary Wharf is one of the venues again. I know the dates and venues for each race but until they’ve announced them officially on the website, I can’t say!Posted 5 years agomartyMember
Looking forward to it. Should be able to get a nice wee circuit – unlikely to be a a straight back and forth along the Esplanade – using High Street > Whytescauseway > Wemyssfield > Hunter Street > St Brycedale Ave > Kirk Wynd > High Street.
Hopefully there will be some support races on the circuit beforehand to drag folks in. Would be great if we could get something like Otley Crits up here.
Penny Farthing the obvious choice for pre/post race refreshments. 🙂Posted 5 years agomustardSubscriber
They have to take it along the Links don’t they?! It’s not like the locals aren’t used to it being closed for long periods.
As an aside; have you seen coverage from the mersey tunnel TT, think something like that could be done across the Forth Road Bridge? Cross winds would make it ‘interesting’ 😈Posted 5 years agoprojectMember

Fair enjoyed that, respect to the chap who finished with what looked like a broken left collar bone
Superb evening for it, great view of the riders. Jeez those boys are fast, made my local chain gang look positively pedestrian.
The boy with the damaged shoulder was the only solo to get a round of applause on every circuit. Rab Wardell (he of the occasional STW article) had a crummy night with two punctures, one of which he got bunny hopping a crash.. skillz
Ed Clancy looked like he had it in the bag during the first breakaway but superb ride from Endura to get them back and take the win.
