British Cycling’s Elite Road Racing Manager, Erick Rowsell, says:

"We’re thrilled to confirm three exceptionally strong series, all of which will provide true tests for riders and will help showcase road racing. In recent years we have seen a steady stream of riders make their way into World Tour team reckoning through strong performances in our national series, underlining the importance of a competitive and challenging calendar of races.

“Last year, we introduced a standalone women’s circuit series for the first time. Although we were pleased with the quality of events and competition, we were aware that the high number of races across a road and circuit series stretched the resources of our women’s teams. After consultation with teams, we have decided to again incorporate the women’s circuit event at Otley into the road series, with the intention of reintroducing a standalone circuit series once we believe it to be sustainable.”
