News  – George Samuel Memorial Hove Park Crits Series

Organised by Brighton Mitre CC, the races are renowned for being full-on with riders constantly attacking as they try to score points that will count towards the overall title. Tactical – and bike handling – skills are needed to navigate the tight 1km circuit situated at the northern end of Hove Park in Brighton, East Sussex.

The direction of the race changes every event and it doesn’t matter which way round the race goes every rider will have to face the demanding corners and a leg-breaking drag up the finish that eventually rewards only the very strongest riders.

The racing kicks off on Friday 25 April 2014 and will be followed by three other dates in the series (all on Friday evenings):  9 May, 13 June, 4 July (start times 6.45pm)

Each evening will start with a 4th Category-only event over 30 minutes plus 5 laps, followed by a 2nd/3rd Category contest over 50 minutes plus 5 laps. Last year’s series saw possibly the closest fought battle yet as Stuart Bettis (Southdowns Bikes) was narrowly beaten to the series title by Phil Glowinski (VC Londres) by only 7 points.

With a good crowd always in attendance it is a fabulous series of bike racing with lots of action and deserves all the local support it can get. There are numerous prizes on offer for all categories as well as the prestigious George Samuel Memorial Trophy that goes to the winner of the 2/3 race series.

See you on the start line!
