by Holly Blades

The Dartmoor Classic sportive, taking place on Sunday 24th June 2012, is now open for entries and has recorded its best ever start, with 1800 places being filled within the first week. 

"We had over a thousand registrations in the opening 48 hours and currently we're getting in excess of a hundred hits a day. At this rate, the event could be sold out well before Christmas, which would be a new record." said chief organiser Ken Robertson. 


Amongst some of the more unusual early entries are ones from riders representing Ecuador, Egypt and Uruguay, while several participants from mainland European countries are, once again, in the international mix.  

The 2011 Dartmoor Classic Sportive saw Trade exhibitors, family attractions, live music and on-site catering become part of the vibrant atmosphere created in the start village throughout a 2 day festival.

Staged in association with Specialized, the UCI sanctioned fixture is a Mid-Devon C.C. promotion which will take place on Sun. 24 Jun. Full details can be found at www.dartmoorclassic.co.uk
