Schoolchildren have been chosen as mascots for a cycle race coming to Aberdeen this month.
The Tour Series, which is set to close down the city centre on May 17, was looking for children aged 7-12 who could win the chance to be at the starting line before the elite men’s race.
The official mascot of the race, ToBi, has visited schools across the city to find the 20 youngsters that fit the bill.
After scouring the primary schools, ToBi found the 20 mascots he was looking for.
The race, which will be attended by some of Britain’s top cycling teams, will start and finish on Union Street.
Aberdeen City Council co-leader Jenny Laing said: “Giving local children the chance to become mascots at the OVO Energy Tour Series is a brilliant opportunity to inspire the next generation of cyclists.
“The Tour Series in 2017 was an incredible day with people lining the streets to cheer on the competitors.
“Aberdeen is a dynamic city which offers a great deal for residents and visitors.
“We are making a concerted effort to raise the city’s profile through our ambitious events programme.”
