The Isle of Man Cycling Association and IOM Govt
DED were disappointed not to have been awarded the
honour of staging the British National Cycling Road
Race Championships in 2016 after partaking in a
prolonged bid process.
Feedback from British Cycling indicated that
the bid was very strong however it fell short on
the fact that the Isle of Man lacked a current
‘track record’ in promoting Senior Elite Road
Races. The last time the top echelon of British
Cycle Sport appeared on Manx roads was in 2003
when Manx International Cycling Week was staged
for the last time.
We are pleased to announce that continued
discussions with British Cycling and IOMG DED
led to a bid to host a round of the British
Elite Road Series in 2016. If this event is
successful it will be staged annually and will
lead to another bid to host the British National
Championships in 2018.
The event is scheduled for the afternoon of
Sunday 10th April 2016.
This is a major event that is covered by
Eurosport and will show the Island in a positive
Part of the British Elite Championship Series
the event will bring the top echelon of British
Cycle Sport back to Manx roads on Sunday 10th
April 2016. It will be an annual event which
will lead to the Island bidding to host the
British National Road Championships in 2018.
We need 250 volunteers to act as Stewards and
Marshals on the day…..can you help us please?
The duty hours will be from 12.30 pm to 6.00
pm at the latest. Lots of volunteers will be
‘stood down’ from approximately 4.00 pm onwards.
The duty tasks will not be onerous or
complicated, it will be mostly providing a ‘hi
viz’ presence, marshalling barrier positions and
helping people to cross the roads etc all with a
big smile! The volunteers will be the ‘happy
face’ of the event.
All volunteers will be entered into a raffle
with some great prizes on offer and will receive
some souvenir clothing.
If you can help us stage this exciting new
event please let us know as soon as possible by
