The National Circuit Race Championships will take place around a 1.1km circuit in Hull on Wednesday, July 9.
Both the men’s and women’s races will ride 50 minutes plus five laps of the city-centre route, with cycling fever expected to be high given that the race takes place just three days after the Tour de France Grand Depart in Yorkshire.
Russell Downing won the men’s race in NetApp-Endura colours last year, while Hannah Barnes, now of United Healthcare, won the women’s race for the third time.
British Cycling’s cycle sport and membership director, Jonny Clay, was delighted with the announcement. He said: “Hull will provide a spectacular venue for these championships and the people of Hull will be treated to a great evening of entertainment as they witness the country’s best professional riders racing on their city’s streets”
The women’s race starts at 6.15pm and the men’s race at 8.15pm.
