UCI WC IN FORT WILLIAM

Surprisingly fine weather in Fort William on race day.

Having battled hard against the conditions throught parctice and qualies, we are really proud of Marine Cabirou and Tracey Hanna and their 4th and 5th places respectively.

Tracey not only had to compete with the demands of the track and the Highland’s elements, as last year’s winner, she carried the weight of expectation the whole weekend.

Whilst being one of the oldest race circuits on the calendar, Fort William is also one of the most ‚up-to-date‘ tracks in the world. The course builders are continually reconstructing in order to push the riders year on year. As a consequence, the riders have to  ensure they have the changes dialled in. The weather conditions in practice and qualies, added extra testing dimensions to these new course features.

Thankfully, the Scottish weather chose to behave itself on race day and the racing was amazing. Congrats to all our SRSuntour riders and staff.

We’re looking forward to the next round already.
