British Cycling Time Trial at Cadwell gets underway today

Thursday, June 25 2015

The British Cycling National Time Trial Championships take place at Cadwell Park today (Thursday), and the festival of pedal power shifts up a gear at midday when the competitive action gets underway. Tickets for the event are available on the gate for £20 per car.

A 45-minute Cadwell Kermesse cycling course will provide a warm-up to the Time Trials, which will be signalled by a fly past by a Dakota C-47 from the RAF Battle of Britain flight. The opening competition will be the Under-23 Championship, with Scott Davies defending his title. Lists of all riders taking part can be found in the entry lists for male and female riders below.

The Women's Championship gets underway at 1:30pm, where a new champion will be crowned and all eyes will be on Paralympic legend Dame Sarah Storey, with Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker also favourites for the win. The final rider will be greeted by a fly past from the Red Arrows at approximately 3:11pm. Click here to view the rider list.

The final competition will be for the Elite Men's Championship, which commences at 4:00pm. Commonwealth champion Alex Dowsett has won this event several times and should have knowledge of the Cadwell Park section of the course from his racing driver father Phil, a former BTCC runner-up. He'll face tough competition, however, from Geraint Thomas, James McLaughlin, Matt Bottrill, Mark Christian and Stephen Cummings. Click here to view the rider list.

The course will consist of the circuit plus a seven-mile tour of the Lincolnshire Wolds. The road section will be completed twice by the Under-23s and Women riders for a 21-mile course, whilst the Elite Men will tackle three loops of the roads, making a total of 28 miles.

There will be electronic timing screens to keep everyone up to date on the action, with merchandise and food and drink available to purchase at the venue.
