News: Seaton Cycle Fest Returns

The successful Seaton Cycle Fest returns for its third year on Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July. Fast becoming a key date in the cycling calendar, Seaton Cycle Fest is held in the beautiful seaside town and includes fast and furious criterium races for all ages and a more genteel vintage cycle day for family fun.

Race Day, on Sunday 1st July, sees 200 of the best riders from the region and beyond taking part in a series of fast-paced criterium races covering a 1.2km circuit following the long, flat seafront as well as a sharp ascent and tricky technical descent. Race categories include juniors, men and women, an open race and relay race for kids comprising up to 400 heats throughout the day.

Brandon Ellis, organiser of the Race Day says, “Our race day is fast becoming a must for serious riders in the South West and we’re anticipating a big turnout this year. The course has a good mixture of tight technical corners and long straights and is considered one of the best town centre circuit races in the country. The atmosphere last year was amazing and we hope this year to see plenty of spectators as well as riders. In the past two years we have attracted some of the best riders in the country with Great Britain internationals Lauren Dolan and Will Tidball among our winners in the last two editions.”
