This third and final round of the CycleOps Power Road Sportive Series returns to the popular Selkirk stage in the Scottish Borders (followed by the MTB Marathon on Sunday, July 24). Starting at Selkirk RFC the choice of courses 47 and 95milers both set a firm challenge and although the organisers stress that “None of the hill climbs are Alpine in scale” this area isn’t exactly renowned for its pancake-flat profile either. Registration opens on the evening before between 6.00 and 9.00pm (with a Saturday option too) and the event gets underway between 8.30 and 10.00am. Entry £27.
