Entries are still open for the Glasgow Grand Prix on Monday August 28, the eve of the Tour of Britain, according to organisers. A total prize fund of £2000 is up for grabs, with cash for the top 20 finishers, £350 for the winner, and three primes.

The race - a counting event in the British Cycling Elite Circuit Series - starts at 7pm and lasts around an hour. It will be contested over the same 1 kilometre route around George Square Street, Montrose Street and Cochrane Street that hosted the prologue to the Tour of Britain last year.

So far, 15 Tour of Britain riders have entered but the take up from others is disappointing, organisers said.

The event will also include a Future stars race, featuring the country's top junior riders.

Entries will remain open until August 21. For more information contact Graeme McGinty at glasgow.grandprix@btinternet.com.
