The British National Road Race Championships will be hosted by East Riding for the second year running from June 29-July 1. The event will start with the Elite Men's circuit race in Beverly on Friday, June 29.

The event will continue in Yorkshire, incorporated in the Yorkshire Festival of Cycling, with the Women's National Championship on Saturday, June 30, and the Elite Men's Championship on Sunday, July 1.

Reigning Women's National Champion Nicole Cooke, who recently won the Women's World Cup Tour of Flanders and currently leads the World Cup rankings, will be returning to defend her title.

"This is the biggest event in UK cycling and for Beverley to host the races for the second year running is testament to the work of the council, police, chamber of trade and other local organisations," said British Cycling Yorkshire vice-chairman Michael Boyle.
