Cicle Classic viewing

Has anyone ever been to watch the cicle Classic? Quite fancy getting a fix of watching some racing and this is next weekend, quite hard to find much info about it though. Read through the guide online and there are a few places that sound promising on route but wondered if anyone had any experience of it at all?

Would go up to Yorkshire in a couple of weeks but running a marathon that weekend so it's off the cards.

Looks like it could be a decent race this year.

    I would go to Owston village and stand on the climb as they come off the sector towards the steep part.

    Owston is a good call. If u have bikes, u'll be able to ride onto the Sommerberg from there - they do at least 2passes, one in each direction - the last usually on the run into the finish
  • Slightly OT but, Channel 4 are showing a one hour highlights programme on May 7th.

    Keep a look out for JTL, hiding behind a beard and an Audlem Cycle Club jersey. He doesn't do well, btw

    FYI - Just noticed there's a highlights program for this on Eurosport VOD.

    Watched the highlights of my local classic :)

    Really great race, would hope at some point it gets established as a higher grade event by the UCI and we get the Lotto's and Etixx's over for it. That would be spectacular.

    Watched this on the gym exercise bike yesterday, looked a good race (and some excellent crashes!).

    Hope it continues to grow in profile as it is a great event with plenty of character.
