This year’s British Cycling National Road Championships takes place between 21st – 25th June 2023 heads to Redcar and Cleveland who hosts three events that form the National Championships, Time Trial, Circuit Race and finishing off with a Road Race.
This event marks my first time attending and with media accreditation while capturing images for myself but also for FTP Racing. Also this marks my first time attending a British Cycling ran/organised event and only covered 2 events, the Circuit and Road race.
This year’s time trial event had the start and finishing line hosted within the Croft Circuit where the riders then entered the neighbouring roads within North Yorkshire to cover the 13.7km route to cover the required time trail route of either 27.4km or 41.1km distance.
Unfortunately I was not able to attend this event to capture any images or experience this part of the National Championships Road event.
This event was covered through live updates via British Cycling social media channels with TV highlights due to be shown on ITV4 on Wed 28th June at 6pm*.
