Something for the weekend

Elite start times are up: and what a race is in prospect! 17 Nations and no fewer than eight men's World Champions (can you name them?) in the strongest field ever assembled in the UK.

The winners of the two sprints, Yannick Michiels and Soren Bobach are still here. World #2 Daniel Hubmann, seeking revenge after his Edinburgh DQ and Stirling defeat, is likely to set the early pace, with World #1 Olav Lundanes starting last.

Among the girls, Tess Hill and Cat Taylor are back to bolster the England SHI team, but with Claire Ward and Hollie Orr on the Scots team they'll have a job to do. Fewer world champions in the field (Simone is most of them, and Heidi Bagstevold hurt herself at Stirling, but who can you spot?). Top seed is Tove Alexandersson, five JWOC golds and four WOC silvers, a World champion in waiting if ever there was one.

Even if you can't make it to Balmoral on Saturday, you can still follow the action live on IOF livecentre
