Le Petit Grand Prix
06/09/2015 - Lincoln - Sportive
Le Petit Grand Prix is the little sister of the main Lincoln Grand Prix Sportive which is held the day before the historic Lincoln Grand Prix elite cycle race in May. Enter Le Petit Grand Prix and get a taste of the main event.
The objective of Le Petit Grand Prix is to introduce riders to Lincoln and The Wolds area over a different route, which does not include the cobbled finish on Michaelgate. There is also a shorter distance for new riders or those returning to fitness. The long route riders will even get to see the Sea.
Enter this sportive and you will quickly find yourself on some of the quietest roads anywhere in the country. Don't get caught out thinking Lincolnshire is flat though. It is in places, but it is grippier than you think in the Wolds.
Test yourself in September at Le Petit Grand Prix, then set yourself a target to be fit enough for the main event and the cobbled climb of Michaelgate in May.
