Bishop Auckland Cycle Races Route Route Released.

New for 2014, Velo29 and Durham County Council have added the Bishop Auckland Cycle Races to the North East calendar of major road events. Though not yet part of the Elite Criterium Series, we are carrying all the infrastructure and excitement from our series event to Bishop Auckland, it’s the week after the last race of the short 6 round Elite Men’s series. We expect all the top teams to attend as there are very few opportunities to race at this level and with such a handsome prize pot.

A brand new event for 2014 to celebrate the Yorkshire Grand Depart of Le Tour!

We wanted to do something special to mark this huge occasion in Yorkshire and what better way than riding 101 miles of the 101st Tour de France, here on our own roads!

The event is not a one hit wonder, it will become part of the legacy of the Grand Tour and its visit to Yorkshire in 2014. We anticipate thousands of riders will take part and we’ve priced the event to be as accessible as possible to all without compromising the great features we offer.

The Ripon Tour Sportive will depart from Ripon Race Course (with camping available) and head out quickly to join the route of stage 1 of the 2014 Tour Route.

Over the 101 miles you will ride through the amazing North Yorkshire countryside on the same now hallowed roads as used in Le Tour the previous week. The roads will still be painted with the riders names and you too will feel like a Tour Star as you ascend these great climbs alongside thousands of other Sportive riders.

The short route at 40 miles takes in some spectacular scenery and a challenging climb to Lofthouse before an amazing long decent to join Le Tour route for a fast run in to the Ripon finish.

Full details will be launched on a specific event website very soon and online entry will be open from 1st December on the http://www.entrylive.com/ site.

Long Route £30   Short Route £25
