British National Championships return to Beverley

British Cycling has decided that the National Elite Circuit Race Championships will be held again in Beverley in 2009. The medieval East Yorkshire market town played host to the 2008 championship, which was watched by thousands of spectators. Following Britain's Olympic Games cycling success in Beijing, British Cycling has been overwhelmed with bids from towns and cities who would like to host future events.

"It is a remarkable achievement that a small market town like Beverley has been awarded this blue riband event. "The support of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Humberside Police and the people of Beverley has been vital in attracting the race to the town again," said Michael Boyle, race media officer and British Cycling Yorkshire board member.
