The weekend of 6 & 7 June 2015 will see a weekend of closed road firsts in UK cycling as the Tour of Cambridgeshire Gran Fondo and Chrono brings continental style events to the UK.

 

The UK's first truly authentic continental style closed road gran fondo will take place from Peterborough on 7 June 2015 with the Tour of Cambridgeshire Gran Fondo. The event will be the first of its kind in the UK, with a race at the front and a sportive for the rest of the field, and follows a well established format already very successful in mainland Europe.

 

There are 10,000 places available on a first come, first served basis with seeding for the front racing groups. The 132km loop through the Cambridgeshire countryside promises a mix of flatland with small sharp climbs similar to the terrain in Belgium. Well stocked feed stations and mechanical and medical assistance along the course will look after riders during the event.

 

Saturday 6 June will also see the first ever UCI World Cycling Tour event take place in the UK, with the 28km closed road Tour of Cambridgeshire Chrono time trial. Riders will start the 'sporting' course from a professional race style ramp with electronic chip timing to ensure accuracy. Rider limit is 700 and it's open to all levels, with the first 25% in each Masters age category (both male and female) invited by the UCI to compete in the 2015 UCI World Amateur Road Championships time trial in Denmark in September.

 

Male and female winners of both the Gran Fondo and Chrono will each receive £1,500 and there will also be equal prizes for male and female Masters age group classifications. Combined prizes for the overall on both events will also be awarded.

 

Entry for the Gran Fondo is £56 and the Chrono £34 with a limited joint entry of £80 also available.
