Prudential Ride London Criterium - expressions of interest.

The region has been invited to send teams of 4 boys and 4 girls to the Prudential Ride London Grand Prix (http://www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/The_Events/Prudential_RideLondon_Grand_Prix.htm). The criterium races will take place in St James's Park in central London on the evening of Saturday 9 August and will be a fantastic opportunity to race on the same billing as the country's top male and female riders.

This opportunity has only just been announced and comes at a busy time of year for many riders - the day after the end of the National Track Championships. For this reason, the region would like to give preference to riders who have not raced in the National Track Championships.

There is no entry fee, but riders would be responsible for their own transport to and from the event. The event will be supported by Ian Murray, who will deal with logistics and be at the event to support riders on the evening.
