as part of Farnham Festival of Cycling
Sunday 7 July 2019 from 18:00
An exciting race programme for 2019
Racing cyclists are invited to take part in Farnham’s third Town Centre Races, which includes races for Elite riders and children.
Held on the one-way system and supported by local businesses, clubs and volunteers, the races deliver excitement for participants and spectators alike.
Town Centre Races or ‘criteriums’ are notorious for their fast and furious pace and the potential for supporters to get close to the action – and this one will be no exception. The short circuit and its tight turns will test the riders’ racecraft and bike handling skills to the max, while spectators will be torn between holding their breath and yelling for all they’re worth!
There are five races:
• 18:00 U8/1U10 sponsored by Farnham Town Council
• 18:15 U12/U14 sponsored by Farnham Town Council
• 18:40 Men (3rd cat Regional B) sponsored by Hoops Velo
• 19:20 Women (E/1/2/3) sponsored by an anonymous donor
• 20:00 Men (E/1/2 National B) sponsored by Pedal Heaven
Entry is closed – see you in 2020
All riders, including children, must hold an appropriate British Cycling Racing Licence.
