by Holly Blades

Following on from its sell-out success in 2011, the organisers of the Cotswold Spring Classic have teamed up with new title sponsor Santini for their 2012 event. Sticking to its regular Easter Monday slot, the 2012 Santini Cotswold Spring Classic will be taking place on 9th April.

As in previous years the event will be based at Cirencester College (in the heart of the Cotswolds), where there is ample free parking, changing rooms (with showers), hot finish food for all riders and much more.

With two routes on offer (100km and 160km) it's the perfect start to the sportive season - whether it's your first proper ride back and you need to check you fitness levels, or you've been training hard and want to push for that gold standard time.

Each route will be fully and comprehensively sign-posted, with two feed stations on the longer route and one on the short route.

The event will also be cover by NEG motorcycle outrider support, MediBikes and Performance Cycles neutral service to give you the full European sportive experience.

New sponsors Santini will bring an added dimension to the event, with an increased trade village and some extra special giveaways - more details of which will be announced in the New Year. 

"As part of our sportive program Santini is excited to be associate the Cotswold Spring Classic. It gives us the chance to showcase Santini clothing and reach out to our core customers" says Jonathan Sangan, Santini Brand manager

Entry for the 2012 Santini Cotswold Spring Classic is now open, with rider numbers limited to just 750 places. For more details, and to enter the event, visit
