News: Record Entries for Youth Championships
Story posted June 22, 2010; Michael Humphreys (Organiser for LVYCC) | British Cycling National Youth Circuit Championships | Saturday 24 July | Redbridge Cycling Centre, NE London
This latest from the organiser - Entries have reached 300 riders! Thank you to everyone who has made an entry... and if you haven't got round to it yet there is just time. We are guaranteed to be on the maximum for Youth A Men, entry for which was frozen on 4 June to leave space for any top ranked rider who makes full entry up to the 3 July deadline.
All other races can still expand on number of entries so make sure your entry goes in through the webste. You will not see larger youth races anywhere. Full list of riders will be published on the website by end of 3 July. There is no entry later on. http://londonchamps2010.moonfruit.com
Looking at rankings against the number of entries, this is guaranteed to be the best field in any youth race in any category this year. Quality of racing is up to the riders, but with major cash prizes, jerseys, at least one perpetual trophy and medals on offer they won't be lacking in incentive. Of course the superb facility and circuit at Hog Hill makes it more special and demanding for all who contest the national championships. Its climbs and turns will be a challenge for all, whether they are regular locals or distant visitors.
All championship events will run on the full 2km circuit by special arrangement to produce worthy championships winners. Every rider taking part will receive a commemorative medal. A lovely podium is being specially made for the promotion by Service Graphics. Generous cash prizes of over £1600 are augmented with vouchers from top London dealers Bike & Run and Mosquito Bikes.

We are really looking forward to a great day of youth racing.
