Chorley Grand Prix
Visit Chorley town centre on Sunday 15 April to cheer on Britain’s professional cyclists as they race-off on a 116 mile course around the Chorley Borough in the opening round of the British Cycling Elite Road Series for 2018.
Chorley Council has teamed up with British Cycling to host the prestigious cycling event for a fourth consecutive year that will see the country’s top riders and teams battle-it-out over a challenging five-lap route through the Chorley countryside, before racing to the finish line on Park Road, close to the entrance to Astley Park. The race is part of the 2018 HSBC UK Spring Cup series.
The popular event is returning after it was held in Chorley for the last three years with the race being described as ‘one of the best ever supported national road series rides in the country’. It will also showcase the beautiful borough to a European audience when the event is broadcast on Eurosport.
What a great race! If you didn’t catch the result the top three were (1) Karol Domagalski (2) John McEvoy (3) Richard Handley. If you came along we’d love to get your feedback in our survey. Please click the link below
