News – Otley Circuit Races

The post nationals domestic racing scene kicks off on a high with a classic town centre circuit race, the Otley Grand Prix which was won in 2014 by the British Circuit Race Champion, Adam Blythe.


Ed Clancy and Adam Blythe elbow to elbow to the line last year. Could 2015 be a repeat or will an Aussie (Steele Von Hoff)  take the glory!

The Orica GreenEdge rider is on the start sheet again for 2015 as is the Aussie champion Steele von Hoff (NFTO) who rides with number 1 on his back thanks to Adam’s win in 2014 as Steele rides for the same team as Adam did last year, NFTO.

The line-up though has many more stars including former winners Scott Thwaites (x2)(Bora–Argon 18), Ian Wilkinson (Raleigh-GAC) and Felix English (JLT Condor). Other ‘names’ include Olympic Champion Ed Clancy (JLT Condor), Daniel Mclay (Bretagne-Seche Environnement), Tom Stewart (Madison Genesis), Pete Williams (One Pro Cycling), Steve Lampier (Raleigh GAC) and Under 23 TT Champion Scott Davies (GB Academy).

They are just some of the riders capable of winning the race with many more in the start list below.

The night will also see the Pinsent Masons Women’s race, part of National Women’s Road Series with the Paralympic legend Dame Sarah Storey (Pearl Izumi Sports Tours Intl) heading the line up along with series leader Nicola Juniper (Team Giordana- Triton).

Jessie Walker who signed for an Italian UCI team recently is on the start sheet and is the daughter of multiple winner of the mens Otley GP, Chris Walker. A star from the world of cyclo-cross Amira Mellor (Paul Milnes – Bradford Olympic RC) is on the list as is the top junior in the TT champs, Abby-Mae Parkinson (Team Giordana- Triton).

Charline Joiner (Team WNT) is another to look for and a prolific winner of women’s races.

The night will also see an open 2/3/4 race and plenty of youth racing as well all keeping thousands of people who will line the barriers entertained well into the evening!
