Action fast and furious is on offer as leading cyclists head for Bo’ness foreshore on Sunday for ‘‘Dig In At The Dock 2014’’.

Up to 150 riders will battle it out for the honours this Sunday (January 5).

There have been some modifications made to the course for this year’s event and it is set to be a great spectacle for the public.

The best riders down to ride are top Scottish professionals and previous winners James McCallum (NFTO Cycling Team) Rab Wardell (Orange Monkey Pro Team), Gareth Montgomerie and David Lines (Starley-Primal) as well as Tour of Britain sensation Ben Greenwood.

The top pro riders will take on Ridley Scottish Cyclocross Series veteran champion Gary McCrae (Leslie Bikes) women’s series winner Maddie Robinson (VC Moulin) in the unique one-race event.

Event organiser David Hamill has devised a series of prizes such as the Alpine Bikes Loudest Spectator, along with Best Costume/Banner which has been endorsed by Costa Cycling Holidays.

The event has also maintained race sponsorship from Pedalpower in West Calder, one of Scotland’s largest retail cycle shops, who will be bringing down their full Endura cycle clothing range at January sale prices as well as having a on site presence from Giant, Cannondale and Ridley in the pro cycling arena zone.

There are further entertainments in the shape of live commentary, the Sambalistic Samba Band, a collectable race programme, as well as the now traditional raffle competition to finish the day off in style.

Throughout the day the Grange Kitchen will provide healthy hot and cold food to riders and spectators.
