UCI 7th Edition Wiggle Magnificat 2012
Location: Newbury Racecourse HQ
Event: Sunday 3 June 2012

Wiggle has announced that the Wiggle Magnificat is back for another year on Sunday 3 June 2012, Bank Holiday weekend at Newbury Racecourse HQ.

The Wiggle Magnificat is renowned for its ability to bring together competitive, experienced, club, leisure, and family cyclists. It’s a charity event that will see entrants to the adult sportives supporting the Fire Fighters Charity. The family and children’s events will be raising money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Everybody has a chance to get involved in fundraising as the Wiggle Magnificat is carefully planned to ensure that there is a choice of rides to suit every level of rider. 

There are three main challenges for the day: the 51 mile Communicat, 81 mile Intercat and the 127 mile Magnificat. As the longest route, the Magnificat takes on 9 major climbs and has a cumulative ascent of 2,800m – making the final downhill flourish back to the finish at Newbury Racecourse a moment for legs to savour! For intermediate and new sportive cyclists, the Intercat and Communicat routes (respectively) are perfect – with ample refreshments and smiles to keep riders energised!

Bring friends and family!

Riders can enter as many of the events as they want – making it a great excuse to really indulge a passion for cycling. They can practically spend the whole day in the saddle if they want, without missing out on quality family time. Details of Junior Wiggle Magnificat and family cycling activities taking place within Newbury Racecourse Grounds will be launched early in 2012.

All routes include well-stocked feed stations, on-the-road photography, timing chips and goody bags. Changing rooms, showering facilities and stands from Torq Nutrition and Wiggle all add to the on-the-day experience. In addition, British Cycling coaches will be around to advise riders on different aspects of their sporting performance – be it endurance, power or simply a bit of on-theday encouragement.

Entry to the Magnificat rides are as follows:

127 mile MagnifiCat : RRP £25.00
81 mile InterCat : RRP £25.00
51 mile CommuniCat : RRP £19.50

Active Network online booking system is Smartphone enhanced for Wiggle Magnificat.

A first time sportive rider in 2011, Dominic Curran explains why he’ll be back for more in 2012:
"It was without a doubt one of the hardest 8.5 hours of my life round the 127 mile course but as my very first Sportive, the organisation of the event and enthusiasm of all the amazing volunteers on the course will take some beating. Look forward to coming back next year."
