Rutland Water is gearing up for its first ever staging of the CiCLE Classic Cross – the fifth round of the British Cycling National Trophy Cyclo-Cross race on Sunday.
The course has been described as super fast with the feel and atmosphere of a continental style race. The venue, provided by Anglian Water with support from Rutland County Council, has been described as first class by the organisers. It offers a new dimension to cyclo-cross in Britain and a large crowd is expected to see this first ever staging in Rutland.
"The more that we look at the venue, the more we realise the fantastic potential for cyclo-cross that is offered at the venue, alongside the Rutland Water Cycling facility. Everything is now falling into place for a really outstanding promotion," said Race Director Colin Clews.
"No one could ask for a more scenic venue, offering tremendous photographic and spectating opportunities in addition to top class spoorting action. We hope that the race will bring even more people to the popular tourist centre in the midst of Rutland, and live up to the theme of 'Discover Rutland’.”
