Cycle Tours UK (CTUK), in partnership with Winchester City Council, Winchester BID and British Cycling are delighted to announce that Winchester will be hosting a Criterium Cycle Race, right in the heart of Winchester City Center on the 11th August 2013 from 4-8pm. The Winchester Criterium will be the headline event after the ‘Winchester Cycle Fest’ that will be taking place between 12pm and 4pm, earlier in the day.
Criterium racing is the cycling equivalent to F1 motor racing. A fast, thrilling, action sport that will see cyclists race between 40 mins – 1 hour around the city in a barriered circuit before doing a few extra laps and sprinting to the finish line. The barriers will be there to protect the public from any spills, however you will be right next to the action and will no doubt leave the event pumped about seeing what next year has to offer!
The Races that will be available to enter will be:
U16’s & U14's
U10's & U8’s
