Wallacehill Events, organiser of the Tour DoonHame, has revealed the race route for the 2011 edition of the British Premier Calendar event.
The 2011 stages will take competitors on a journey through the origins of cycling amid the dramatic landscapes of Dumfries & Galloway. It includes a completely new stage based in Moffat, climbs set amidst the dramatic scenery of the Lowther hills and town centre finishes for all three stages, making the 2011 Tour a 'must ride' race for elite road racers from the UK and beyond.
The 2011 Tour DoonHame is a counting event on British Cycling’s Premier Calendar Elite Road Racing Series, and it takes place in Dumfries & Galloway over the Easter holiday weekend. The Tour attracts a field of up to 140 of the best riders from throughout the UK and further afield, and competitors tackle a testing course in excess of 250 miles over three days. Tour DoonHame is sponsored by ScottishPower Renewables and is funded by EventScotland and Dumfries & Galloway Council.
The 2011 event also sees a brand new look for Tour DoonHame with a new logo thanks to funding for additional marketing activity from EventScotland. The financial support from Scotland’s national events agency is also allowing the provision of new spectator entertainment areas at the finish of each stage.
