The Cicle Classic is currently the UK’s only UCI one-day race. It is an extremely demanding race, not only due to the level of teams riding, but also because of the infamous gravel/farm track sectors. There were 10 of these sectors in the 2022 race, all of which testing both rider skill and concentration, along with bikes and tyres.

The race was mixed for us, with a few crashes, fortunately nobody hurt, and punctures. These set backs saw our 6 man team only having one finisher, George. George rode a great race, and had luck on his side, avoiding puncturing and crashes to finish a very impressive 20th place.

This was George’s first UCI race placing at senior level, and we are pretty confident it will be the first of many more to come. Cicle Classic was great experience for all our riders riders, and will help them through the season ahead.
