2017 British Cycling National Youth Circuit Race Championships
British Cycling is delighted to confirm that the 2017 British Cycling National Youth Circuit Race Championships will be promoted by Team Milton Keynes and be held on a city-centre criterium course in Central Milton Keynes on Sunday 9 July.
It will form part of Milton Keynes’ 50th birthday celebrations, and Team Milton Keynes is also pleased to welcome Milton Keynes Council under its ‘MK 50’ and ‘Amazing MK’ banners as key partners.
Races will be held on a new, extended route which will increase the overall course length to 2.3km, designed to produce tight racing and an exciting spectacle for viewers.
The championship races are for girls and boys within under-14 and under-16 categories, which should attract a full field of the most talented young riders the country has to offer. Events on the day will consist of the championship races plus a full programme of support races for younger riders and senior men and women.

NORPIP
This family event was great fun last year, at Silverstone for the whole family, expensive (but for a good cause) worth every penny. NOT racing just a great surface to ride on with lots of other people having fun. Worth putting in your diary!
