Based at 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 892ft, the road across the top is the highest in the county, with the race route visiting the summit nine times.

The five mile drag up from Winterborne Whitechurch is never steep but, tackled twice will test the legs before a tough finale. A 9.6 mile finishing circuit will take the riders through the village of Milton six times. The steep climb out of the village will see the strongest come to the front before the hilltop finish above the Blackmore Vale.

The race date of Saturday May 24th 2014 is just four weeks before the National Road Race in Abergavenny and will be ideal preparation for the championship say the organisers. “One Day in Dorset” has a minimum prize fund of £2000, entries will open 1st January 2014.
