2010 Disability Circuit Race Series

January 13, 2010

British Cycling are pleased to announce the dates of the 2010 Disability Circuit Race Series. The races will be held on a mixture of circuits used last year. For example 'Salt Ayre' and Hillingdon, as well as new ones including Sundorne in Shrewsbury and Upavon in Wiltshire. Round 3 will also incorporate the National Championships at the well established Horwich Carnival on 20th of June. No stranger to holding major events, this closed-road town centre race has hosted cycling events since 1946. Expect thousands lining the street and a carnival atmosphere!

The series will consist of five rounds and following the success of last years series, will be held using the same format. However, there will be a significant change due to the introduction of a new classification system by the UCI. This will mean that all riders will be put into new classifications which will particularly affect LC and CP riders who will now be combined into the new C Class. The new classifications will be assigned by British Cycling and to enable us to do this, you will be asked to supply details about your disability so that you can be accurately assigned a new category.

The series is aimed both at disabled cyclists who wish to compete for the first time, or for more experienced disabled riders. Those with aspirations of riding for the successful Team GB squad are encouraged to compete as there will development coaches present to scout for talented riders. If you are interested in competing at the series or would like further information, please contact disability@britishcycling.org.uk for further information.
