What can we expect?

This stage could prove to be a very tactical race with a lot of the GC teams plotting how to take advantage of the early major climb – the Duke’s Pass. It’s an ascent lasting 4km at an average gradient of 6%, with steep sections of up to 15% in the first 2km out of Aberfoyle.

It offers any team with the opportunity to make amends from time lost on stage one and attack early. Duke’s Pass will be the perfect place to catch the best of the action from Stage 2 after the riders leave the festivities of Glasgow behind them.

The feed zone which comes shortly after the decent at Strathyre Cabins, is a great chance for any young ones watching to grab any leftover bottles and other team souvenirs!

Despite inevitable attacks off the front of the peloton when the race hits Aberfoyle and the climb itself, having the best part of 100km still left to race means any breakaway will need to be incredibly strong to hold off the chasing pack.

The large crowds anticipated to be watching the finish in Perth can expect an almighty bunch sprint with the sprinters team vying for success.
