Lake APR 2013 Report  Casting a sideways glance from any part of the race route (in particular towards Ben Venue to the north) you could have been forgiven for thinking this race was an Alpine stage in a grand tour when in fact it was the 2013 edition of the Glasgow Nightingale-sponsored Spring Classic - The Lake Australian Pursuit Race.

This decision was taken as a last resort by  the race organisers and was completely down to rider safety.
