Stockton Grand Prix

The National Road Series is the highest standard of racing in the UK.

All the biggest names will descend upon Stockton-on-Tees, including Olympic and previous National Champions.

We will also be running a round of the UK National Female Road Race Series, see all the top female riders battle on the roads of Stockton and the surrounding area!

The circuit is the now established Grand Prix route. With a Riverside Grand Depart followed by a large loop to the North of the Town then returning to the Riverside for a nail-biting finish on the 5 mile circuit!

Part of a huge weekend of cycling, from Saturday’s Sportive and Sunday’s Festival it’s a “must-do” weekend for any cycling fan!

Most fans descend upon Stockton to enjoy the dramatic Grand Depart then follow the race out of Town to enjoy laps of the main circuit where the action will unfold. Then before the final lap head back to the Riverside to enjoy the finish.

Watch the racing LIVE on our youtube channel or at the Riverside on our big screen
