SOUL 2, 2018

Broxburn, 4 February

Broxburn lies to the west of Edinburgh, along the A899. This was a brand new map, and the prologue race was in the eastern part of it, with mixed urban terrain including the Union Canal, housing estates of various ages, business premises on the main road, riverside paths along the Brox Burn, and some open ground. The weather was sunny and pleasant, mild for the time of year, with little wind.
