The event is not ticketed and will be free for members of the public to attend.

Great Britain Cycling Team para-cycling head coach, Jon Norfolk, said:

“We’re really looking forward to getting in some high-quality racing in Manchester. The event presents a fantastic opportunity for us to secure some vital qualifying points for the Paralympics.

“To be able to do this in an environment where our riders train every day without having to factor in travel to another country is a huge advantage for us and should allow the riders to produce some excellent performances.
