FROM THE ORGANISER


The Festival will once again see founder and organiser Peter Harrison at the helm and he welcomed the news:

"We're obviously very pleased to see our two races as part of British Cycling's national road series. The Beaumont Trophy has such a rich history: previous winners include Sir Bradley Wiggins and the race has twice hosted the national championships.

The Curlew Cup, though a more recent arrival on the race scene, is now in its tenth year and can similarly boast some outstanding previous winners, including former world champion Lizzie Deignan.

Both races have a deserved reputation for combining some tough terrain, with outstanding backdrop views of Northumberland. They are challenging races for all riders and always produce worthy winners. I can't wait to welcome elite racing back to the North East!"
