The next generation of UK's elite cyclists will once again showcase their talents in the region as the Loughborough Cycling Festival returns on Sunday 28 May.
The action-packed day will see the University campus transformed into a fast and technical circuit with some of the best riders around competing for podium places.
A festival feel will surround races incorporating the British Cycling National Youth Circuit Series alongside two senior events. Competitors will represent major national teams alongside Loughborough's home-grown talent.
Spectators will witness first-hand riders taking on a tough criterium course that includes steep hills, numerous 90-degree turns, and rapid straights.
Dr Dave Nichols, Team Manager Loughborough Lightning Elite Development Team and Cycling Manager Loughborough University said: "We are proud to once again be hosting national-level bike racing on campus and inspiring the next generation competing at the National Youth Circuit Series.
"This year's event will feature community-based activities as well as elite men's and women's racing, showcasing the wide-ranging development and commitment to cycling at the university."
The event – which is free to enter for all the family – will also include cycling workshops, Wattbike competitions, various food and drink stalls, bouncy castles, and visits from the local fire and police services.
