A highlight of the Guildford Festival each year, the races are fought out by the country’s top road racers. This is guaranteed to bring a fast and hard-fought main event on Guildford’s notoriously tough course, with its cobbled climb up the High Street and tight, narrow corners out of North Street. As well as the main event a programme of supporting events is also offered including the ever popular ‘youngsters’ race where many top cyclists of the future get their first opportunity to ride in such a big event. The biggest applause is often saved for the smallest riders!
Entries for the races are open on the British Cycling website.
