As Part of the British Elite Championship Series this event will bring the top echelon of British Cycle Sport back to Manx roads on Sunday 10th April 2016.
It will be an annual event which will lead to the Island bidding to host the British National Road Championships in 2018.
The event will see three races for Elite Men, Elite Women and 2nd/3rd category riders being run simultaneously. That means approx. 450 riders and three separate race convoys on the road at once!
We need at least 250 volunteers to act as Stewards and Marshals on the day.
The duty hours will be from 12.30 pm to 6.30 pm at the latest. Lots of volunteers will be 'stood down' from approximately 4.00 pm onwards. The duty tasks will not be onerous or complicated, it will be mostly providing a 'hi viz' presence, marshalling barrier positions and helping people to cross the roads, all with a big smile! The volunteers will be the 'happy face' of the event as they were for the Commonwealth Youth Games back in 2011.
All volunteers will receive a souvenir T Shirt and will be entered into a raffle with some great prizes on offer.
We really need your help to stage this event which will lift Isle of Man Cycling to a new level. There are no local events on that day and you can still get your Sunday morning ride in if you want to.
Early commitment to this event is essential as we have to plan resources effectively.
Can you please let me know if you will help to make this a massive Isle of Man success?
Thanks in advance.
