Worst secret ever thanks to our shameless plugging...
Ayr Roads CC have secured financial backing and support to run the 47th David Bell Memorial RR as a National A event on the 10th June 2012 starting and finishing in Girvan. Full details will be emerging over time at http://www.southcarrickdaviebell.org

As you can imagine, its a big undertaking and if anyone would like to get involved or can offer support we'd be delighted to hear from you.

We're also looking to build upon the content of the website around the history of the event. Do you have a story or memory of competing in the race? If so, we'd love to hear it, good or bad...

Cheers guys,

Chris Johnson

Huge support from local community for our bike race, all very keen to welcome cycling fans down for the action.

Just 5 days to the Davie Bell now - we're expecting some great racing so please come down if your near and support the riders. Top spectator positions listed on page 10 of the handbook - http://southcarrickdaviebell.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/2012-06-10-race-handbook.pdf

Remember riding it at least twice, first as a 1st yr Senior. Got a bus from Glasgow down to Ayr, wheels off and bike on the luggage platform at the front of the double decker. Bottle of juice and a packet of Jaffa cakes. Dropped somewhere in darkest Ayrshire after the Nick. Must have finished but cant remember, sometime in the early 60s.
Second recollection is riding over the Nick in 2 inches of sleety snow in the break, 6 in the break so was probably 6th

Race Handbook now out with start sheet. See: http://southcarrickdaviebell.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/2012-06-10-race-handbook.pdf

Still taking entries for the Highwayman Challenge Audax if anyone fancies making a weekend of it and watching the race on Sunday.

Entry closes this Saturday folks - http://www.britishcycling.org.uk/events/details/76280/47th-South-Carrick-David-Bell-Memorial-Road-Race

Tis a good quality field, but missing a good few of Scotland's E/1/2s! C'mon chaps, no point being shy or the opportunity won't come again.

Promo vid for the Davie Bell Memorial...New route looks a cracker, even without the strada grigio .....

http://exposureroom.com/members/eventfilms/fde3f2bcd7cf4746a4116dd8140283fb/

...Oooofah....
ChrisJ Posted - 19 Apr 2012 : 20:27:19
Tough decision, but allows us to get on with planning a great event.

http://southcarrickdaviebell.wordpress.com/2012/04/19/a-bientot-to-the-strada-grigio/

Still a good few spaces left for scottish riders.

Also, please get behind our fundraiser for MS Society Scotland, dig out your old bike and ride our 100km Audax!
ChrisJ Posted - 11 Apr 2012 : 13:32:13
Rather unfortunately, the Smithfield Nocturne has been announced the night before the Davie Bell making it very difficult for some of the big teams to attend.

However, this does create an excellent opportunity for our Scottish E/1/2 riders to enter the event with some real confidence in actually performing. We are still expecting a fantastic field with a great mix of teams from right across the UK, and racing level is set to be very high.

Entry is now open and i'd encourage everyone eligible to give it a go and support our event. Don't be shy, this is what those licence points were for!

For those of us who haven't yet attained 2nd cat status, there is the 100k Highwayman Audax running on Saturday 9th too, taking in all the roads that make the Davie Bell unique. Entry just �8.

That's some memory you've got Neil - you can remember everybody that's beaten you in a gallop



I can also remember the names of all the riders who have never outsprinted me. Stuart Macgregor...that's it.

AndyRaff Posted - 01 Mar 2012 : 12:33:30
Highwayman challenge looks like fun for sure.

I will be getting an entry in soon.
