BREAKING NEWS...BREAKING NEWS... 28Apr14

Never one's to rest on our laurels, the VTCC organising committee are pleased to confirm an exciting addition to this year's Preseli Angel sportive - the inclusion of a "pro feed-stop" concept.  What does this mean?  Well, picture the scene: You're speeding through the first few miles of this magnificent course and all's well.  Fishguard Hill has been dispensed with and you've dealt with Cwm Gwaun and long pull from sneaky-beaky Trecwn also.  You know the feedstop is ahead, but before that, the beast of Bwlch y Gwynt is lurking, just waiting for the slightest weakness on which to pounce, introducing you to the Man with a Hammer.  Ouch.  Have you fed well enough before starting off?  Have you gone off too fast and burnt up reserves prematurely?

 
Fear not!  Those legends in Velo Teifi Cycling Club are introducing a UK-first for sportive events... an interim feeding station a la professional road races - soigneurs holding musettes filled with light snacks will be at the roadside.  The soigneurs will hold out the bags for you to take on the go, without breaking pedal stroke.  You then shoulder the bag and dip into its welcome contents to ensure safe passage up the Bwlch.
 
YOU'LL BE JUST LIKE A FREAKIN' PROFESSIONAL!  Move over Team Sky, VTCC have got this marginal gains thing covered.
 
As you might be able to tell, we're quite excited about this revolution in sportive features.
 
We can't believe the price isn't going up...

Set in beautiful North Pembrokeshire and now in its seventh year, the Preseli Angel offers quiet but fast roads, varied terrain and spectacular coastal and mountain scenery.  Challenging, fully way-marked routes and the Preseli Angel’s timing in the year’s events calendar, deliver a fantastic but eminently do-able course that will suit early season fitness levels.  Note, the Tour of Pembrokeshire has moved its date and now acts as a warm up for the Angel; clearly in recognition of the Angel's status as [probably] the best sportive in West Wales!

The Angel offers two routes, 40 and 78 miles. now being referred to as ‘signature routes’, such was the overwhelmingly positive response to the course first showcased in  2012.  Both routes share the same beginning that includes fast roads, a magnificent climb of the Preseli Mountains and super-fast descent.  For those wanting more, the longer route then takes you to the edge of the Preseli Mountain range, through more fantastic scenery before returning you to the foot of the magnificent Carn Ingli for the brutal last climb of "Bessie’s” and the rewarding vistas from the top before the fast descent back to Newport.  In fact, both distances feature downhill finishing runs that make the effort all worthwhile.

Our foodstops are well stocked with a range of sweet and savoury (yes, the much-loved PBJ's will be back) and the post-ride meal with the friendliest club in Wales is just the icing on the cake.

We believe in sportives that are fun, friendly, challenging and ride-able.  We also believe in value for money and with the increasing commercialisation of sportives equating to increasing fees with no discernable added value (who wants another t-shirt, medal, plastic bag?), we shun electronic timing, shiny gizits and "Charidee" commentators, in favour of rider-developed courses and a welcoming organising team with great food.

Come see for yourself.  Man, this sportive's got soul!
