Eileen Roe Shield
Women's Road Race
It's 2022 and we're going racing!!!
The Junior Women's RR Champs is incorporated into the Eileen Roe Shield Road Race which has was first run in 2018 on the superb local Lathalmond circuit. The race was extended slightly in 2019 to 61 km and formed part of the Scottish Women's Road Race Series.
The race starts when riders join the circuit from race HQ approximately 5km from the lap/finish area. After the first time through the lap/finish line the race consists of 7 laps of 7.71 km and a total ascent of 364ft /111m.
A well run event, with riders traditionally protected by police outriders and 35+ volunteers assisting in marshalling and driving the support vehicles.
The event it ideal for all levels of rider, whether you want to attempt racing for the first time or use it as precursor to the National Women's Road Race Series.
The race is open to Cat 1/2/3/4 Junior women riders and Senior 3rd and 4th Category (unfortunately due to British Cycling rules restricting entry based on distance, we are unable to accept entry from senior women at 1st and 2nd cat level)
