Organisers of the Isle of Man Youth Tour have been overwhelmed by so many entries that they have had to close the Junior Men and Youth A Boy's categories. Other categories remain open until the closing date on April 13, however, riders are requested to enter as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
The impressive list of entries include World, European and British champions, Dutch champions, Great Britain Olympic Development riders plus virtually all of the Youth and Junior British Olympic Talent teams and a team from as far away as Bermuda.
The Tour commences on May 4 with a prologue time trial, followed a road race and kermesse on the following day, and a circuit race on the third day. The Isle of Man Youth Tour forms part of the British Cycling National Junior Road Race Series and National Youth Circuit Race Series. Large crowds are expected as Greenlight Television will be filming the Youth Tour for Sky TV
