Changes to UK Premier Calendar

British Cycling has announced changes to the UK Premier Calendar, the country's elite road racing series. Two events, the Five Valleys Road Race and the Havant Grand Prix, have been cancelled because of organisational difficulties.

The Havant Grand Prix will be replaced by the previously postponed Tour of Pendle on August 13. The Tour of Pendle will be the seventh counting event in the Premier Calendar series and will be followed one week later by the final series event, the Tour of the Peak.

British Cycling's competition and events manager, Jonny Clay, said, "Although the loss of these events is disappointing for all concerned, it is in the nature of promoting at this level that problems are encountered from time to time. We are very pleased that the earlier postponed Tour of Pendle will fill one of the newly vacated dates."
