One of Britain’s top cyclists paid a visit to an Aberdeen school to share his insight on what it takes to be a world-class cyclist.
Jacob Scott, 22, a rider with the ONE Pro Team, visited pupils at Robert Gordon’s College in advance of the city’s returning OVO Energy Tour Series.
It was the first trip to Aberdeen for Jacob who hails from Holmfirth, Yorkshire.
Sarah Webb, head of Robert Gordon’s College Junior School, said: “We are committed to developing cycling skills and this visit has been timely with the reintroduction of bikeability to our Primary 6 and 7 children this term.”
The OVO Energy Tour Series, in its 10th season, is Britain’s leading domestic televised race series which takes place in eight locations.
Aberdeen City Council co-leader Councillor Douglas Lumsden said: “We are making a concerted effort to raise the city’s profile through our ambitious events programme and bringing the OVO Energy Tour Series to Aberdeen, in conjunction with EventScotland, will strengthen Aberdeen’s position as a must-visit destination for high-profile cultural and sporting events.”
Britain’s top professional cyclists will once again take to the streets of Aberdeen as the OVO Energy Tour Series returns on Thursday, May 17.
