Bad news. The Cleethorpes Super Prix will not be going ahead in 2017.
The cancellation for this year is mainly down to overall funding issues with two major sponsors retracting their pledges, but a local council decision taken just last week regarding a Road Re-Surfacing issue (required for Rider safety), which has huge cost implications, has simply taken the decision out of my hands.
As you know, we had huge plans and aspirations for the event to make it a real showcase for Cycling and Cleethorpes with a huge Prize Fund, TV coverage, 9 Races, Live Streaming and Big Screens.
I am looking for positive negotiations to get the event on the calendar again in 2018.
I am sure you will be as disappointed as I am with this decision, but I remain committed to putting the event on in the future.
