The event is the only two day Men’s event in the Premier calendar and for the first time perhaps, sees a bigger entry for the women’s race than the men’s one. Weather permitting, the course for the event is one of the toughest on the calendar and will result in worthy winners with defending champion Erick Rowsell of Madison Genesis back with a strong team.


Last year, the race saw snow descend on the riders but fingers crossed summer arrives just in time …

Organised by Mike Hodgson and his team, the race sees eight man teams from the five of the six British UCI conti teams with the one from Team Wiggins missing from the line up.That means 40 of the riders or almost half, are from five teams whilst the rest are from the smaller teams from around the country.

In the first Prem of the season last weekend, Edmund Bradbury led a 1-2 for NFTO (Dale Appleby) but with all the teams back to full strength after being split between two races (Chorley and Normandie), the red and black army may not have it all their own way in the two stage race which last year saw snow falling on the riders.

As with any of the events, especially these early ones where teams are still finding out who the inform riders are within their squads, the team line up below for the UCI squads is likley to change. Take Raleigh GAC for example where its expected Matthieu Boulo, Morgan Kniesky and new signing Albert Torres will fit into the line up below if all is well with them.

Start at Blanchland Village, proceed to Carricks Corner, then via Ruffside to Pow Hill, on to Edmundbyers through Derwent Reservoir grounds. Then on to Manor House, Bailey Hill, north side of reservoir then return to Carrick Corner. This completes one lap of the course. At the finish of lap seven through Edmundbyers do not turn left into the reservoir as in previous laps. Continue down over the Derwent Bridge, enter the grounds of the reservoir and finish at the top of the hill as in previous years. This is approximately 87.5 miles.

Proceed to Carricks Corner (neutral). Race starts via Ruffside, Pow Hill and Edmundbyers. Enter Derwent Reservoir grounds and then on to Manor House, Barley Hill, Northside of the reservoir to Carricks Corner. This completes one lap.

Major change to the circuit – after completion of lap two at Carricks Corner turn right towards Blanchland, then turn left at Rope Barns (as in previous years) via Allenshields Farm T. Junction turn left and proceed to the B6278 junction. Turn left in Edmundbyers via Church bank and join the B6306. Continue via Ruffside to the top of Blanchland Bank and turn left. Complete three laps.

On completion of lap three continue through Edmundbyers, turn left into the reservoir and complete two laps of the reservoir circuit. On the last lap, continue through Edmundbyers over Derwent Bridge and then enter the reservoir ground and finish at the top of the hill.

Please note we have moved the Feed Station to 200 yards beyond Pow Hill picnic area to the top of Berry Bank in the large car park on the left. This will cover the men’s event on the Saturday afternoon, the women’s event on Sunday morning and the men’s event on Sunday afternoon both for the Blanchland and the reservoir circuits. A large lay-by will be in use both days which will be clearly marked. Please do not block the entrance to any field gateways.

The women’s race celebrates its second year as a two day stage race. Over a hundred entries are listed below for this race headed but missing is last years winner, Dani King who is racing in Europe. Instead, a rider from Team Breeze, former track sprinter Danielle Khan will wear that prestigious number.


Danielle (above) is one of many world class track riders in the team and if that wasn’t enough, the race also sees a world class mountain bike and cyclo-cross rider, a World Champion no less (Under 23) in Evie Richards. One of the rider’s is also a British champion on the road, Alice Barnes, the under 23 RR champion who was second to Lizzie Armitstead in Lincoln last year. The Irish champion also rides in the form of Lydia Boylan whilst the UCI team, Drops Cycling whose kit comes from VeloUK’s longest serving sponsors, Prendas.

Perhaps the favourite will be another British champion, the circuit race champion from 2015 and winner of the Women’s National Series for the last two years, Nicola Juniper is entered as is her talented sprinter teammate, Charline Joiner. Another ‘name’ spotted in among the entry is Gracer Garner who in a sprint, would be a big favourite.


Start at Blanchland Village, proceed (neutral) to Carricks Corner (racing starts) via Ruffside, Pow Hill, and Edmundbyers, then left into the southern entrance to the reservoir grounds. Continue to the exit and then continue over Derwent Bridge in the direction of Edmundbyers. Turn right at the southern entrance and this completes one lap. Continue for a further eleven laps and the finish line is beside the reservoir tower. Each lap is approximately two miles.
