The Cycling Ulster Youth Academy are seeking expressions of interest from riders for the 2022 Youth Tour of Scotland from Under 16 boys only and combined Under16/under14 girls (see eligibility below).

The CUYA are hoping to send a male and female team to the event. The Youth Tour of Scotland is a residential stage race, taking place in the beautiful Perthshire countryside 1-4th April 2022.

This four-day event welcomes youth teams from across Britain, Ireland and further afield to compete across five stages to gain the top position and sought-after jerseys in general classification, points, king and queen of the mountains, team and Scottish rider competitions.

At this stage we are just looking at an expression of interest for riders who wish to be considered for any teams that may be sent to the event. The CUYA are applying for places at the event but this is not guaranteed. Once the CUYA know we have been accepted to attend the event we will be in touch with riders who have been successfully selected to represent Cycling Ulster.
