The organisers of the Women’s Tour of Scotland, Zeus Sports, failed to pay a large number of creditors following the event in August of 2019 and have gone out of business owing teams nearly £75,000, reported Cycling Weekly

The Women’s Tour of Scotland was planned as a three day tour – however the weather led to the cancellation of the opening stage – with 16 teams racing, including Ale Cipollini, Bigla, Valcar-Cylance, Parkhotel Valkenburg and Lotto Soudal Ladies, along with American teams Tibco-SVB and Rally UHC.
