Burnley and Pendle CTC, again provided marshalls for this annual town centre cycle race, which attracts a contribution from Pennine Events towards our club funds.

This year the event, which is part of the Pendle Cycle Festival, began with a light hearted two lap race on Raleigh Chopper bikes, with a Le Mans style start. The field included British Cycling President Brian Cookson, and the eventual winner and former British National Road Race Champion Rob Hayles.



The support race was won by Gary Adamsom (Team SIS) in a bunch sprint, ahead of Robert Watson (RVO Racing) and Chris Lawless (Maxgear RT).



The main event, the Elite Race, was filmed by Sky sports, and featured an early attack from local rider Ian Wilkinson (Endura), who ended up in 5thplace. Another local rider, olympic bronze medallist, Steven Burke (Team UK Youth) was to finsh 6th. However the final laps of the race were to be dominated by the Rapha Condor Sharp team, with olympic gold medallist Ed Clancy winning the race, ahead of team mates Dean Downing, Dean Wilson and Graham Briggs.
