After the remarkable success of the 2013 British Cycling National Road Race and Time Trial Championships in Glasgow, information is available for venues interested in hosting the championships in 2014.
Over 30,000 spectators watched Mark Cavendish and Lizzie Armitstead become national road champions in the city centre on Sunday 23 June.
Prior to that on Thursday Alex Dowsett and Joanna Rowsell were crowned national time trial champions as for the first time the British Time Trial Championships were incorporated into the same week of racing.
These developments reflect the increased profile of the event and are an indication of the direction the championships has taken in recent years. British Cycling is inviting future host venues to continue to raise the bar for the event going forward.
“The status that the championships now have and the calibre of riders who contest them make the National Road Championships into a compelling major event proposition for any town, city or region looking to establish itself as a host of major sporting events,” British Cycling’s Cyclesport and Membership Director Jonny Clay said.
Information for venues interested in hosting the 2014 championships is available via the British Cycling website at www.britishcycling.org.uk/nrc2014 along with contact details for the British Cycling Cycle Sport department for anyone wishing to have an informal conversation about what’s involved in hosting the championships.
The 2014 National Road Championships incorporates the men’s and women’s Time Trial Championships and Road Race Championships and is scheduled to take place on 26 June and 29 June 2014 respectively.
Tender applications for the 2014 championships remain open until 1 July 2013 with the winning bid anticipated to be announced in September 2013.
Details of the tender process to host the National Road Championships beyond 2014 will be published in due course with details of the 2015 process expected to be published later this year.
