The previous event organiser, Richard Jarrold, is still actively involved in this years event and responsible for arranging sponsors, marshals and motorcycle outriders, etc., so please stay in touch with him as you have done in previous years.
The race has been extremely popular this year and we received more than 120 entries, so sincere apologies to those of you that we had to return entries to.
The race programme is now available to download from the following link.  Severn Bridge RR Programme The hardcopy programme has also been posted on 1st March to all riders or their team manager.
There is one rider change which means the hardcopy programme is incorrect and the download is correct.  Rider 15 is Jon Tiernan-Locke (Rapha-Condor-Sharpe).  Also reserves are reduced to 14.
