The classic Otley Cycle Races have stacked line ups of 120 riders in each of the National Circuit Series events on Wednesday 26th June in Yorkshire


Hot on the heels of the Otley Show and Carnival, it’s time for the next part of the community’s annual summer party when the UK’s top cyclists turn the town centre into a racing circuit for one night only.

Building on a tradition stretching back to 1985, this year’s LOGCO Otley Cycle Races take place on Wednesday 26th June and showcase the unique link between grassroots cycling and the professional sport. Featuring the opening rounds of British Cycling’s National Circuit Series for the UK’s fastest men and women on two wheels, the evening also has races for amateur riders as well as Under-16s and opens with a sprint up Bondgate for very young racers on their balance bikes!

The circuit and surrounding roads will close at 5.15pm with racing starting at 5.30, building up to the National Series with the Santini Women’s Otley Grand Prix at 7.30 and the Rayner Foundation Men’s Otley Grand Prix at 8.30. Roads will re-open at 10pm. The evening is organised be a team of volunteers from the local cycling scene who work closely with British Cycling to stage a professional event backed by key sponsors who share a love for the sport and a desire to see young riders given the opportunity to develop.

Race organiser Sonja Harper explains: “Most of the team have worked on the races for years but we still get the same buzz of excitement every year – especially when we get the chance to launch the National Series like this year. We all want to see cycling flourish, any and all cycling – not just racing – and that is shared by our headline sponsors without whom we wouldn’t have an event.”

“MAS Design Consultants have been with our races for years and are well-known for backing racing and race teams in Yorkshire. Otley Cycle Club are putting a lot of effort behind getting women and girls into racing and leisure cycling. Between them these two are sponsoring our Under-16s races this year.”
“Chevin Cycles will once again sponsor the Classic Race. It may be one level down from the elite circuit series but you wouldn’t know it as the average speeds are just as fast. Women’s Grand Prix sponsor Santini are known their support of professional women’s teams at the very top of the sport and I’m really delighted that our long-standing sponsors Blacks, ID Planning and Park Lane Homes have named the Open Grand Prix for the Rayner Foundation. Founded in 1995 following the death of Dave Rayner, the charity’s objectives are to help young people advance in life through the sport and healthy recreation of cycling.”

Often described as “a party with a bike race at its centre”, the evening attracts crowds of up to 14,000 who spread out round the tight, left-handed circuit from its start and finish line on Bondgate. The town’s thriving food and drink outlets are always busy and there are extra pop-up stands too, with local pubs claiming race night is busier than New Year’s Eve.

Inviting local people to the party is important, particularly those residents who live ‘inside’ the circuit and are asked to manage with closed roads for a few hours. A team of seven volunteers from Otley Cycle Club and Otley Carnival committee have been delivering those all-important invitations over the past week. “We’ve posted leaflets through around 2,000 letterboxes with details of the circuit, road closures and where people can enjoy the race, which of course is free to watch”, says Otley Club President, Tony Wild.

In a week where Mark Cavendish has received a knighthood and where Yorkshire is gearing up to mark the 10th anniversary of hosting the Tour de France it’s worth noting that ‘Sir Cav’ won in Otley back in 2005, and that both Sir Bradley Wiggins and Geraint Thomas OBE rode in Otley before becoming Tour de France winners. Add into that mix previous Otley race winners Dame Sarah Storey and Lizzie Deignan MBE and it’s no surprise to hear Sonja Harper say “come to Otley next week and you might just see the future Dames and Knights of the road!”
