Last night, 19th July, saw the 6th running of the Sheffield Hallam Sheffield Grand Prix cycling which this year doubled as the British Championships.
Its the 3rd year that we have sponsored the first swooping corner as “Sweet Peaks Corner” and we’ve always enjoyed the great event put on by Marc Etches and the Sheff Rec Cycling Club. Its also the 2nd Year that we have been there as sponsors of the Cycling Sheffield-Giant Sheffield team with riders in the race which is fantastic.
This year the Elite of the men and women came along and even with the light shower before the women’s race the quality of the race stayed high. Cycling Sheffield-Giant Sheffield were in touch until a couple of mechanical issues saw the riders drop back which was a shame, especially at their home race, but you cant have everything.
A great win in the women’s race for Katie Archibald with 17 year old Tom Pidcock winning the mens senior title.
