Preview – Awesome line up for Otley

This is the 29th running of the massively successful circuit races. Always looked forward to by riders and spectators alike, this year’s races are set to be even bigger and higher profile than usual – they are just three days before the Tour de France comes through Otley.

This has had a massive effect on the event. Special guests will include organiser of the TDF, Christian Prudhomme and some of his key ASO management team along with Gary Verity whose vision, drive and chutzpah landed the opportunity for Yorkshire to stage the Grand Depart.


Joining them will be one of the towering greats of world cycling – Bernard Hinault – who will be starting the Otley GP and awarding prizes to the winners of the youth, women’s and classic races. The evening’s bike racing commences with the Pinsent Mason’s Otley Women’s GP.

This race is part of the British Women’s National Series and will see series leader Nicola Juniper battle it out with global cycling superstars Laura Trott, Dame Sarah Storey, last year’s winner Elinor Barker and local cycling royalty, Lizzie Armitstead.

Next up is the MAS Design Consultants Super Prestige Youth race for U16 boys and girls. This is a chance for everyone to see the stars of the 2020 and 2024 Olympics and beyond, race around the legendary Otley circuit. Riders in this race include current National Youth Series Leader Matt Walls along with Yorkshire hitters Reece Wood, Harry Hardcastle and Yorkshire Champion Tom Pidcock.

After the Chevin Cycles Classic race for local riders there is the grand finale, the dramatic highlight of the night, The Property Development 2014 Otley GP. This is the first round in the 2014 British Elite Circuit Series and has drawn a field of 119 riders.

To celebrate the Grand Depart in Yorkshire the winner of the Otley GP will receive a grand! Rapha Condor JLT are the leading team having just won this year’s Pearl Izumi Tour Series and with riders like last year’s Otley winner Felix English and Olympic Champion Ed Clancy they are in good shape.


They won’t have it their own way though with Madison Genesis and their riders Tobyn Horton and Tom Stewart coming into form at just the right time. NFTO, Raleigh and Velosure will also be after the £1,000 first prize. As will Adam Yates (OricaGreenEdge) the British winner of the Tour of Turkey in his first year as a pro.

Adam is quoted as saying that Otley is his favourite circuit race so he should be well up for a scrap with the domestic riders. Whoever wins, it will be great to see watch the riders round that famous last corner and into the wall of noise that lines the finishing straight on race day.
