New round of National Road Series: Lancaster Grand Prix

The Lancaster Grand Prix will take place on Sunday 9 June 2019 and will be a round of the National Road Series. The race will start and finish at the iconic landmark Ashton Memorial, Williamson Park, Lancaster, and will cover a hilly 100 mile course (Dolphinholme circuit) featuring seven laps of a circuit based largely on roads in the famous Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

A top class field of 140 riders from all of Britain’s national elite men’s cycling teams will take part and the event will be televised as the third of eleven rounds of the prestigious Series. During the race, a free festival of fun events and displays aimed at families and promoting healthy lifestyles will also take place in Williamson Park.

Roger Hammond, Team Manager of Madison – Genesis said: “Our mission is to support the British racing scene, so for us this major new event on such a challenging hilly course is great news, and we will of course support the race with a full team”.

Graham Jones, Chairman of Lune Racing Cycling Club said: “I am delighted to have been able to bring this top-class bike race to Lancaster, home to many cycling enthusiasts, and I would particularly like to thank the Lancaster City and Lancashire County Councils for their help in supporting the event. We hope to build the event in the future into something even more special for the area”.
