WE ADDED CYCLING TO OUR PROGRAM THIS YEAR!
Cycling was a great success at the Word Corporate Games last year in Liverpool and resultantly we have been inundated with requests to include this growing sport on this year’s programme. In an attempt to satisfy these calls the Corporate Games Team have viewed a number of possibilities across the region and we now feel that we have found the perfect venues for these special events. So we are delighted to confirm that Cycling has recently been added to our packed 23 sport weekend programme for the UK Corporate Games Stoke and Staffordshire 2015.
There are not one but two cycling event disciplines that you can select and participants can enter 1 event or both. First up we have the challenging multi-lap 40K Road Race circuit AND the following day will see the staging of a difficult 16K Time Trial.
For the 40K Road Race we have decided that the perfect destination is the Curborough Sprint Course. It is a little bit further away from the main venues for this year’s Games but it is easily accessible by road and nestled near Lichfield in the outer edge of the County of Staffordshire. The course has a great reputation for car racing but it is also a British Cycling approved performance centre and this should make it the perfect destination for our Saturday morning Road Race. The road surface is in excellent condition and the sweeping bends and fast straights will make it an exciting challenge for cyclists of all abilities.
Then on Sunday morning we have the CTT approved Time Trail race in Lichfield over a challenging 16k to blow the cobwebs away after the Great Games Party on Saturday night! For anyone who wants to get a first glimpse of the road circuit feel free to have a look at this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=re3z5ttEx-A. PS- we did not choose the music!
