Stirling Bike Club, in collaboration with the University of Stirling, Scotland’s University for Sporting Excellence, are proud to announce the return of the Crit on the Campus bicycle race. Building on the success of last year’s race, #COTC in 2015 will be bigger than ever before. A total of 340 riders will compete laps on the 1 mile circuit around the University of Stirling’s picturesque countryside campus.

All spectators are welcome to support the riders and experience the friendly and exciting atmosphere! A veritable closed circuit extravaganza, the University Campus grounds will be closed and transformed into an exciting and unique cycling race course for riders of all abilities. Take in the glorious setting as riders race eyeballs-out for an hour on a circuit that loops right around the main University building , including a few speed bumps, twisting turns, and even a switchback!

Racing begins early at 8.30am for a series of Youth races showcasing the future stars of the Scottish race scene, closely followed by a beginner (4th category) race at 10.45am. The Women’s race follows at 12.50, offering equal prize money to the Elite men’s race that begins at 14.00. With over £1300 thus far in the prize fund,the races promise to be fast and frantic with some of the best riders from the UK battling it out, including several Team Scotland Commonwealth Games stars.

Spectators can view the races from anywhere on the course whilst walking around the University campus, or enjoy the action in the events village at the heart of the circuit. Whether one of the 300+ competitors, or just soaking up the atmosphere as a spectator, Crit on the Campus should be an enjoyable day out for all on Scotland’s most beautiful campus.
