Ryedale Grand Prix

Sunday 26th August 2018

First promoted by British Cycling’s Yorkshire Region in 2005 the Ryedale Grand Prix has featured as the National Road Race Championship in 2005, 2008 and in 2012. For 2016 it returns as part of the the British Cycling Elite Road Series and will once again incorporate the Peter Longbottom Memorial in dedication to the Malton Olympian. Sharing the day will be the Women’s National Road Series starting at 9:30am.

 

In 2013 the event moved to Ampleforth Abbey, since when the magnificent grounds have played host to some thrilling racing, across a landscape that’s provided iconic photos and lasting memories. To enhance the spectator experience Ampleforth Abbey are looking to introduce this year a Made in Ryedale showcase of crafts and wares in the area adjacent to the finish to create a spectator hub for the day in addition to the usual Abbey attractions.
