Oliphant in form heading into Tour of Britain

It’s now two weeks since Evan Oliphant won his 3rd edition of the Davie Bell Memorial Road Race down in Ayrshire. The promotion and reporting of this particular race by Ayr Roads CC is some of the best in Scotland, off the top of my head, comparable with the Scottish road race championships when run in Balfron by Vortex RT and the Dig In Around the Dock cyclocross event.

Their race report is too good to waste but it’s too late to run it as a blog, so click through to Velo UK if you want a recap – the interesting point is that a race held over such tough parcours (below) came down to a sprint from a group of 14.
