The closed-road circuits at the Lee Valley VeloPark, Kent's CycloPark and Hillingdon will be used for the innovative Condor Cycles Three-day event this May.
Initiated by Jez Cox, Stuart Benstead and Paul Panton, who hold management roles at the three venues, the new event will have an attractive overall and stage prize fund.
The event (May 3-5) will be open to second and third-category riders, and will be one of the first opportunities for the public to race on the new Lee Valley VeloPark circuit, which sits on the site of the former Eastway facility and is positioned next to the London 2012 Velodrome.
Each stage will be 80 kilometres long, and will also feature a supporting programme of events.
Grant Young, managing director of Condor Cycles, said: "We are thrilled to be supporting an innovative three day race series that is spread across iconic London, a place where Condor first put down roots over sixty five years ago.
"The event is a great platform for riders to gain experience of stage racing and show their talents."
