‘ Glasgow requires to capitalise’ – reaction
Scottish cyclist and Olympic gold medallist Callum Skinner speaking to BBC Scotland
I assume it’s a great point to have all the disciplines in one city. Often people’s passions for cycling can be limited to one discipline, so if you concern the city because you’re a road biking fan you’ll have so many possibilities to absorb BMX, track or hill biking, so it will truly broaden your perspectives.
Glasgow actually needs to maintain the momentum as well as capitalise up from the Commonwealth Games as well as the European Championships. They’ve spent so much in the facilities and it would certainly be terrific to see them to be continue to be used and also for the athletes to remain to place on a great program.
