The 2012 Halfords Tour Series will begin in Kirkcaldy, Fife, as the unique, team based, televised cycle race Series makes its first visit north of the border to Scotland.
Kirkcaldy will stage the opening round of this year’s Halfords Tour Series on Tuesday 15th May, as ten top British teams begin their five week battle to be crowned champions of the Series, which sees teams go head-to-head for victory.
