GREAT ORME ROAD RACES CANCELLED for 2016
With much regret Rhos on Sea Cycling club announce that we are unable to stage the Great Orme Road Races this year. We are sorry to disappoint all the riders who were intending to compete in the 2016 event. We hope that this is a temporary situation and that the racing will return in the future.
Our reason for cancellation is that both British Cycling and Welsh Cycling have expressed concerns about the security of the closed road circuit course and the safety of riders racing. In particular, the junior and youth classes would now not be allowed to compete. Rhos CC, as the promoting club, have always considered the inclusion of the young riders to be a key part of the day’s racing.
We wish to thank all the competitors who have enjoyed the previous four years racing on this spectacular and demanding circuit and thank them for making the effort to visit Llandudno and making the Great Orme Road Races a success and an extremely popular event on the UK road race calendar.
We also wish to give special thanks to our principal sponsors, Tony and Simon of Delsol, who have sown constant and generous support since the first event in 2012.
Our sincere thanks also go to the Local Authorities and townspeople of Llandudno for their help and understanding in allowing us to bring this superb day of cycling to their town.
