All the biggest teams and riders will descend upon Guisborough on the 14th April 2019 for what will become an early season classic. The circuit is a tough one! There are 3 significant hills on each of the 3 main laps. They are short and sharp making it a course for a strong rider who can climb well but has the legs to keep it going in the tough side winds over the top.
The ladies will race first, starting from 09:00 on Westgate Guisborough a field of the UK’s top Female racers will assemble for the opening round to the HSBC National Women’s Series. They will race 65.7 miles over 2 laps of the same large circuit which the men will use.

The flag will drop as we turn right to Sandy Lane (errington woods) and the racing will start immediately, the riders will turn right through New Marske, onto the A174, we join the main circuit at 4 Lane ends, it’s over 100 miles to complete the circuit the riders will do 3 laps, then one small lap, then return home from boosbeck, Margrove Park, Charltons, slapewath back to Guisborough via whitby Road for the nail biting finish!
The finish line will be at Westgate Guisborough in front of Sunnyfield House where huge crowds will gather to enjoy the excitement. A great race for Elite riders to take part in and for the crowds to enjoy.
