Based in Milborne St Andrew, in the heart of rural Dorset, this new race on the calendar takes in Bulbarrow Hill above the picture postcard village of Milton Abbas. At 899ft, the road across the top is the highest in the county, with the race route visiting the summit seven times.

The five mile drag up from Winterborne Whitechurch is never steep but tackled twice, it will test the legs before a tough finale. A 9.5 mile finishing circuit will take the riders through Milton six times. The steep climb out of the village will see the strong riders come to the front before the hilltop finish above the Blackmore Vale.

The race date of May 25th 2014 is just four weeks before the National Road Race in Abergavenny and will be ideal preparation for the championship. “One Day in Dorset” has a minimum prize fund of £1,000 with £350 going to the winner. Full details of how to enter will be posted shortly.
