The Press and Journal (Moray) - - NEWS -

Star of the show was Aber­do­nian Paralympian cy­cling gold medal­list Neil Fachie MBE, who hailed the re­turn of the ma­jor sport­ing event.

He said: “The event is re­ally in­spir­ing for ev­ery­one in Aberdeen and I think it shows peo­ple that any­one can get in­volved in cy­cling.

“It’s been great to see such a fan­tas­tic level of sport brought to the city and so in­spir­ing to see so many peo­ple come out and watch.

“I think it’s re­ally im­por­tant to show that sport­ing events can be brought to Aberdeen and that we are not just a lit­tle city on the edge of the world.”

Coun­cil co-leader Jenny Laing said: “We are ded­i­cated to our ob­jec­tive of get­ting more peo­ple out and about ex­er­cis­ing and this sends a great mes­sage.

“The coun­cil is com­mit­ted to three years of this event.”
