Today is a less formal sprint race

Today’s sprint race is a limited entry event which doesn’t count towards the 6-Day competition as its meant to be a rest day.

For those who need a daily fix and look forward to a Sprint event, we offer a limited entry event which does not count towards the 6 Day competition. For this event, we take you back to Forres town centre which was used for WOC 2015 Individual Sprint final.  Forres is a beautiful town and regularly features amongst the Scotland in Bloom prize-winners; it boasts some intricate alleyways between older buildings and some newer estate housing with park and woodland areas dotted around the centre.
