Races at the Velopark

Together with local clubs Cycle Sport South Hams and Starley Primal, Mid Devon CC are organising a series of seven evening circuit races on the new Torbay Velopark.

The events are designed to cater for existing demand and more importantly to encourage new riders to take their first steps into competition.

Taking place fortnightly on a Thursday evening they will have a friendly atmosphere and develop a community of cyclists at the new purpose built facility.

Each event will follow the same format with registration opening at 1800 and the first event for 4th cat or new riders starting at 1900. After a short break there is an event for 2nd and 3rd category riders which starts at 2000.

The dates are Thursday 5th June, 19th June, 3rd July, 17th July, 31st July, 14th August and 28th August

Mid Devon CC will also be organising a series of youth and womens events at the circuit. The events will take place on Wednesday evenings on the 25th June, 23rd July and 20th August and compliment the coaching programmes that we have in place.

We are particularly interested in developing a strong women’s racing scene at the circuit and the events will be targeted at encouraging new women into cycle sport. More details on timings will follow once the events go live
