The 2006 Isle of Man International Youth & Junior Tour will place Friday 28 April to Sunday 30 April, organisers have announced. The three-stage event will provide challenging racing for the young riders, starting with a Friday evening prologue time trial right outside the event sponsor Sleepwell Hotels on Loch Promenade, Douglas.
Stage two is a hilly road race on a course in the Marown area, just outside Douglas on completely closed roads! The final stage takes place at the National Sports Centre for a circuit race, followed later by the gala prize presentation.
There will be categories for male and female riders, in Juniors & Youths A, B & C. Youth D riders can enter, but will have to ride in the C event on their restricted gearing.
Sleepwell Hotels have once again sponsored the event providing event headquarters, gala prize presentation evening with live entertainment, bike storage and accommodation at reduced cost. The Isle of Man Steam Packet ferry is also offering special deals to competitors and their families.
