Bigla to take on the inaugural Women’s Tour of Scotland
The inaugural Women’s Tour of Scotland commences on Friday with a 103km long stage starting in Dundee and finishing in Dunfermline. The route contains three intermediate sprints and two QOMs. This is followed the next day by a 139.4km long course that commences in Glasgow and finishes in Perth. The parcours features an early ascent of Duke’s Pass, a 4km long ascent with an average gradient of 6 percent, which however ramps up in some sections to 15 percent. The climb comes after 45km of racing and the stage is expected to shake up the GC. The final stage, which starts and finishes in Edinburgh, is 118.3km in length and features several uncategorised climbs. Due to the nature of the open roads and expected strong winds, the peloton may have to contend with echelons along the way, which will no doubt make for interesting racing.
