News: Sheffield to Host Crit Champs

The championships will bring an exciting evening of bike racing to the city, in which men’s and women’s titles will be decided. One of the highlights of the elite road racing calendar, the event will see some of the country’s top professional riders going head-to-head for the prestigious red, white and blue national champions’ jerseys.

Riders will race for 50 minutes plus five laps on the 1.4-kilometre course that begins on Pinstone Street, before taking a left hander on to Furnival Gate. Another left turn takes riders onto Arundel Gate, passing Sheffield Hallam University before a sharp hairpin left after the Crucible Theatre. The race then hits the cobbles of Norfolk Street and Surrey Street before the final left-hander that takes the race back to the start/finish.

Event organiser, Marc Etches, “I’m extremely proud to bring the National Circuit Championships to my home city of Sheffield. The support we have from Sheffield Hallam University and Sheffield City Council is amazing and this will help bring a fantastic night of elite level cycle racing to the streets of Sheffield in July.“
