Ciaran Power East Midlands International Cicle Classic 2008 Jonathan Kennedy

Britain?s largest one-day race, the East Midlands International CiCLE Classic returns on Sunday April 26, and has already attracted considerable European interest.

CiCLE is Britain?s own classic, with narrow and treacherous farm tracks more reminiscent of those to be found in the Spring Classics in northern France and Belgium. It will see 200 riders navigate beautiful East Midlands roads, villages and challenging rough terrain following the ceremonial start in Oakham. The confirmed route for 2009 will see the riders complete almost 100 miles, building to an exciting finish in Melton.
