The UCI has announced that the newly accredited Tour of Ayrshire will take its place in the Gran Fondo World Series roster for 2017 alongside fellow UK-based event the Tour of Cambridgeshire.
The Tour of Ayrshire is organised by the same successful team that delivered the Tour of Cambridgeshire, an event that has been part of the World Series since 2015.
The 12-mile time trial on Saturday and 85-mile Gran Fondo on Sunday will take place on fully closed roads with interval starts in the hilly region south of Kilmarnock.
