On Tuesday (26th May) Motherwell was host to some spectacular cycling around the streets of the town centre. It was a sunny, if very cold, day but this did not deter the many spectators who came to watch the top cyclists in action.
During the day there were races and events for amateur riders before the professionals took to the streets in a display of fast cycling action. The main events of the day were the Matrix Fitness Grand Prix and the Pearl Izumi Tour Series Round 4.
Matrix Fitness Grand Prix
Two Scottish ladies took part in the Matrix Fitness Race – Katie Archibald of the Pearl Izumi team who was the winner and Eileen Roe of Wiggle Honda who was third.
Below are some photographs from the race. (Click to enlarge). More photographs can be seen here.

It was a great day out and a big thank you to all the sponsors and North Lanarkshire Leisure who hosted the event.
