Etape Caledonia – Race Sabotaged

Sunday May 17, 2009

The BBC News site reports on a sabotage attempt on the 81 mile Etape Caledonia road race around Pitlochry, Perthshire.

The charity race was hit by unknown protesters who spread tacks across a section of road resulting in numerous cyclists suffering from burst tyres.  It’s believed that the protest was due to the fact that the roads used during the race are closed to normal traffic.

People can be so short-sighted.  Not only does the race attract visitors (and therefore income) to the area but the race is also in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.  The protesters should have joined the fun and used the fact that they couldn’t use their cars to their benefit – get out and cycle!
