Over 1,000 riders participated in the Etape Loch Ness in May which was the first closed-road sportive to take place on the shores of the world famous loch. 


It is one of the most stunning courses in the UK, offering cyclists a breath taking 67-mile ride that incorporates one of the country’s toughest hills – the 4.8 mile Glendoe climb near Fort Augustus.

The fastest male rider – and also King of the Mountain - was Alan Dean from Edinburgh Racing Club. He crossed the line in a time of 2.55.05, while the fastest female cyclist was Lynne Fraser from Deeside Thistle in a time of 3.26.21. Queen of the Mountain was Natalie Munro of Team 5 Hunner in 25.23.
