Entries: Barnsley ‘Not in the Town Centre’ Races

The women’s race contains many potential winners. Abi Smith of the GB Academy won the Women’s CiCLE Classic showing she can really time trial with a victory by many minutes. Another rider who has done likewise is Ruth Shier of Brother UK/Team LDN who the Women’s British Masters Championship solo after attacking only 12km into the race. If the race comes down to a sprint, look our for Eluned King who won Otley recently and back in 2019, won the Junior Women’s RR Championship in a bunch sprint.

Lucy Gadd and Beth Morrow should also be in the mix with the likes of Jo Tindley, Amelia Sharpe, Samantha Stuart, Kim Baptista, Megan Barker and Mary Wilkinson. A young junior, Emma Jeffers was second in the British Championship road race last Sunday so is obviously in good form too. The strength in depth is such that whilst the likes of Abi Smith may well win the race, there are many other of the names who could also be in the mix on a circuit with enough climbing to give the top riders a chance to thin out the peloton lap on lap.

The climb at Upper Denby

The Men’s race has many a ‘name’ in it such as winner on this circuit back in May, Theodor Obholzer. UCI teams such as Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling, Saint Piran, Canyon DHB Sungod and SwiftCarbon Pro Cycling all have teams in the event as does the GB Academy.

Canyon DHB Sungod have a particularly strong team with the likes of Matt Bostock, Jim Brown, Damien Clayton, Jacob Scott and Reece Wood. They also have Rob Scott who was in the race long breakaway at Otley and finished second to Matt Gibson who is not in the race.

Over in SwiftCarbon’s line up is Oliver Peckover who was third in the race at Upton a few weeks ago and the team also has Alex Peters who was in the mix (2nd) in the ‘Big Dog’ race on the same circuit in May. The riders from the GB Academy like Oscar Nilsson-Julien can never be discounted and with this being such a disjointed season compared to a ‘normal’ one, the form of riders is growing but at different stages which means so many other riders from the non UCI teams will also be in the mix. Riders like Alistair Slater, Toby Barnes, Joey Walker, George Wood (3rd on the circuit in May) and others.

With the extra distance compared to the Big Dog race in May, and a lot of racing since then, the whole shape of the race may be different but it is for sure a great ‘starter’ ahead of the prems in August.
