Etape Caledonia / question

Hi All,

Having done this years Etape Caledonia I've just entered again for 2009 and booked a hotel in Pitlochry, not 20 miles away like I did last week :x

One question I have is why does this event get no mention at all on the Cyclosport website?? I just find that strange that almost everything else is on there, but no mention of this event????

    For what seems to be political reasons, they appear to be opposed to it. I don't understand the details

    I thought it was listed ? Dunno, can't get on it from work as the anti-spyware stuff rejects the whole site as dodgy.

    Certainly there's a thread on the forum on there about the closed roads protest, with much the same arguments as the thread on here.

    As ellib says though, too much politics.

    I believe that consider the Etape Caledonia to be a race.

    Therefore they don't class it as a Sportive, and it doesn't get listed in their events section.

    Out of interest, why do they consider it a race?
