British Cycling Yorkshire Region would like to invite Yorkshire Cycling Clubs to tender for the 2018 Regional Road Race Championships.
The Championships which include a Junior Mens and Veteran Mens Road race, Junior and Senior Women and an Elite Mens race will be held in August 2018. The regional Events Workgroup has developed an event model over the past few years with two successful events held on the Epworth and Upper Denby Circuits. Alba Rosa Cycling Club successfully promoted the event in August this year and did the region proud with a very good day of racing at Bulmer.
Tenders for the event must take into consideration new risk assessments, circuit length and if needed, traffic management. Circuits must be over 8 miles to allow for two races to run concurrently. Tenders need to be with the Region before Wednesday 31st January. The winning bid will be announced shortly after. The recipient club will receive help from the British Cycling Regional Events Workgroup which included help with technical queries, sourcing judging teams, placing commissaries and the supply of race equipment will all be managed by the regional team. The region will also be on hand to help on the day and work alongside the promoting club. In an effort to help with the promotion costs, BC Yorkshire will drop the regional levy for all races.
Anyone wishing to receive more information please send an email with an expression of interest to our Region Secretary, Keith Scott.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch by contacting our Regional Events Officer, Matthew Gott.
