In 2014, event organisers – Velocity Events – took the bold step to raise the profile of Women’s Racing offering equal status and equal prize money to that of the Men and this gallant move really helped promote Women’s Racing and Cycling in the UK and now Women are starting to enjoy equal terms in more and more events that are following Velocity’s lead.
Continuing to help support this growth, the highlight and the second of two Women only Races, this 1 hour race is for Women Elite, 1, 2 starting at 16.15 which will be a great chance to watch some of the best female riders & teams in the country and from overseas competing head to head.
The Race will attract several big ‘names’ and make no bones about it, the Racing of the Women is just as cut and thrust as the Men.
We are again proud to be supporting Women’s cycling and by promoting these races and working with the Teams, this will be one of the biggest & most prestigious Women’s events of the year. We expect to be oversubscribed well before closing date, so get your entry in early.
