The event took place on the 10 mile course on the A77 just south of Glasgow, this undulating and usually very windy course tested the riders’ ability to pace themselves as well as show off their out and out speed over the distance.

A fantastic field of 56 U14 and U16 competitors took to the road to compete for 8 titles, 4 individual and 4 team titles. With several 2013 medallists returning in 2014 looking to repeat their success or carry it forward into a new age-category.
