5th July 2017
The 3rd year of Skitpon Cycle Races, part of the HSBC UK | National Circuit Series. Set in the Market Town of Skipton, delivered by Velo29, Craven District Council and Sponsored by Yorkshire Housing.
For the evening of the 5th July we will transform Skipton into a Closed Road Cycle Racing Circuit with great to watch racing, a chance to meet and see in action the best riders in the UK, an opportunity for everyone to ride on this exciting Town Centre Circuit, Youth racing and some good fun to watch and take part in cycle racing activities.
The evening off all inclusive Cycle Fun has something for everyone. The headline event, the Elite Men’s Criterium will have the UK’s best racers flying around this great new 1 KM circuit at speeds of up to 40 mph! Spectators will be able to get right next to the action around the entire circuit. Watch, meet and even get an autograph from the stars!
The Youth Racing is split between Fun Races for the under 12’s and then for the 12 – 16 we have competitive racing. Youths are always great to watch as they race without fear and are just as competitive as the Elite riders!
Festival Entertainment will be on site all evening with some great fun to take part in activities such as Roller Racing where 2 riders go head to head on the big screen. Brilliant fun and a chance to beat your friends! World Champion BMX Rider Mattie Heamings will be on site entertaining the crowd and we’ll have some local clubs where you can chat and get more information about progressing your cycling.
