Colne Grand Prix
The date for the 2019 Colne Grand Prix is Tuesday 16th July. This is the 16th year that Colne has hosted this event.
The race is part of the British Cycling Elite National Circuit Series and takes place on a closed-road 800m circuit around Colne’s one-way system, making for a fast, exciting spectacle. As a round of the National Elite Series, the top riders in the country take part.
We’d like to thank volunteers like CDPP (Cycling Development Pendle Partnership) who work along side Colne Town Council as the race organisers and the marshals who came from cycle clubs across Pendle.
We would like to thank the generosity of our sponsors, Fort Vale, Riggs Autopack and Unique Clean without whom it simply wouldn’t have been possible to keep the spirit of this British Cycling Elite Series race alive. All our banners were generously printed for free by Hope Technology, while Going Dutch and Cycle Sport Pendle donated all the Champagne and beautiful bouquets.
It was wonderful to see so many people out in Colne enjoying thrilling cycle racing in the centre of town.
