"This is a great opportunity for our riders to get some points on the board for the Spring Cup Series and the races so far show how we are developing as a young squad. That remaining 25% of the race is where we need to ensure we have presence to really make an impact. It is going to be an action packed ten days and the team are up for the challenge."

All the biggest teams and riders will descend upon Guisborough on the 29th April 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 race will depart from the Westgate at 12:00 prompt and rollout through to Dunsdale. 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 nearly 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.
