Arthur Campbell RR
2013 Race - Sat 6th July 2013
In memorial to Arthur Campbell the Glasgow Wheelers' annual RR is held in his name rather than the previous Kirkintilloch Trophy RR held for many years.
After the inaugural editions were held over the Lake of Menteith course, the last two years have seen the use of the Stewarton circuit, south of Newton Mearns, using the A77. The course has been used in the Drummond Trophy and was also used in the 2010 Scottish Road Race Champs. Such a tough course can only produce a proper champion and is therefore a fitting tribute to this great man who contributed so much to this Club and this nation's cycling tradition. The event is being organised this year by Nicky Cronin.

The A race is open to Elite to 3rd Cat riders and tackles a 75 mile course, while the shorter B race is open to 3rd/4th Cat riders contesting a 47 mile distance and will be part of the 2013 WOSCA RR Series.

A prominent UCI official in his time as well as being a long serving President of both the SCU and BCF, Arthur was well known in both national and international cycling circles. His influence extended to helping out countless riders, including giving French lessons to a prodigious talent by the name of Robert Millar and arranging passage and French Club places for promising Scottish riders. He was a one man Braveheartfund in a different time. His persuasive powers even convinced Eddy Merckx and Gino Bartali to attend Wheelers end of year dinners!
