Tour Series Guisborough 2022

Tour Series Guisborough 2022

Visitor Information

On your marks, get set… Go!

Guisborough is hosting the opening round of the Tour Series for the second year running when it welcomes the UK’s leading televised cycle race series on Bank Holiday Monday (2nd May 2022).

The market town hosted the first-ever Yorkshire round of the team-based series in August 2021, which saw dramatic victories for eventual men’s champions Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling and the talented Great Britain Under-23 women’s team.

On what promises to be a fun-packed, adrenaline-fuelled day, here is everything you need to know about the race.

Tour Series

The Tour Series will bring fun, fast and free cycling featuring the UK’s elite teams and riders racing through the streets of Guisborough as they compete against each other to become the overall champions and crowned the winners of The Tour Series 2022.

Established in 2009 and now in its thirteenth year, the 2022 Tour Series starts in Guisborough before subsequent rounds in Galashiels and Sunderland.

The competing teams can be found here at https://www.tourseries.co.uk/teams/

Route and timings

The start/finish line on Westgate will be known to many riders, as it is also where the East Cleveland Klondike GP one-day race historically started. A fast start to the lap will take the peloton onto Church Street – and past Gisborough Priory – before a sweeping run through Priory Close. Expect the battle for position to heat up once again Reid Terrace and Westgate Road throughout as riders seek to be best placed for the 150-metre run to the start/finish line.

The battle to win the 2021 Tour Series title will start with the women’s race at 4pm, followed by the men’s race at 6pm. Both races start and finish on Westgate.

The day itself will start at 12 noon with activities and entertainment across Guisborough’s Town Centre. A full schedule of the day’s activities to be announced shortly.

Where to watch

There is ample space to get in on the race action! The route around Guisborough Town Centre is short, sharp and promises excitement wherever you choose to watch.

To help with the flow of pedestrians moving around the town centre, a one-way system will be in place; we ask that you follow the directional arrows and cross the route at the designated, stewarded crossing points.
