DUNFERMLINE Cycling Club are gearing up to host its first significant race event of the year tomorrow (Sunday).

Riders will come together to take part in the historic Knockhill Mountain Time Trial, which has long been run around a 25-mile, undulating circular circuit on the outskirts of Dunfermline.

An opening event of the season for the time trial racing community in Scotland, a maximum of 80 competitors can take part, and more than 50 had signed up ahead of the closing date for entries on Saturday.

The event, organised by the club's Rachael Cottier, will take riders on a 23.7 miles circuit, with 1,204 feet of elevation, beginning in Steelend and finishes in Saline, on a route that includes Powmill and the Gartarry roundabout, near Kincardine.

Previous winners of the event, and the Joe Wilson Cup, have included the likes of Joe Nally and Adam Wild, who won in 2019 with a time of 57 minutes and 18 seconds.

Equal prize money will be on offer for the top three men and top three women who finish, and there will also be bonus prizes for the fastest rider on a road bike, veterans and juniors.
