Schedule and Results

Watch Europe’s elite road cyclists weave their way through the streets of Glasgow. The road race is a ‘bunch’ event that takes place over a pre-determined lap or laps with vehicular marshals marking the nose and the tail of a race.

A specialist branch of road racing, time trials pits the riders - one-by-one - against a course of a predetermined length in an against-the-clock test. Time trial events come in a number of different distances where riders try to complete the longest distance in the prescribed time. The course starts in Glasgow and winds its way through East Dunbartonshire and Stirling to finish in Glasgow.
