News: TLI Cycling’s Lapierre Race League

Sponsorship by Lapierre France means this league will have significantly enhanced prize lists and provide a goal for everyone to chase the National overall winners in each age category.

Points in the Lapierre Race League will be awarded to the first 10 riders in each age category. This will be multiplied my the number of riders in that category on the start sheet. This should ensure a realistic return for winning your category.

There will be seven events during the season and will also include for the first time, the TLI Cycling National Time trial Championships which are scheduled for early September. The race will be held on what you might describe as a sporting course based around the Denbeigh Moors. And, as the series is ‘Road’ orientated, and to eliminate equipment advantages, the TT will be on normal race bikes with NO tri-bars and a normal race helmet.

So if you don’t have a TT bike, then you are not in anyway discriminated against.

The other good news is that Lapierre are offering a 20 to 25% discount on their 2018 range to all current TLI Cycling members as part of the package. All models 500 and 600 carry 20% and 700, 800 and 900 25%. As they are currently revamping their dealership network, in this instance you will need to contact Keith Jones at Graham Weigh Cycles ( or telephone 01244 831 110 if you are interested. You can see the bikes on and at Graham Weigh Cycles [CH5 1DH].
