Entry for the ever popular, sell-out, Santini Cotswold Spring Classic opens at 8am today (Friday 5th December). The Easter Monday event has fast become an early season must-do ride for many, giving them an early season test of their legs.
“Last year we managed to get additional parking so could increase the numbers to 800 which was a great success, but now there’s nowhere else to go – so once we hit our limit, we won’t be able to take any more riders, and won’t be able to increase it again” Event Director Andy Kirk told us.
2015 is also the 50th anniversary year for event sponsor Santini, and the organisers are planning something a little extra for the event. “We look forward to welcoming riders old and new in what is a very special year, Santini’s 50th Anniversary. 50 years, Made in Italy Made with Passion. Together with our friends at Velo Events 2015, will be sure to be a memorable sportive series.” Jon Sangan Santini UK Product Manager
With an early Easter in 2015, the event takes place on Monday 6th April from its Cirencester base. Offering riders a choice of three fully signed routes, motorcycle outrider support, medical cover, mechanical back-up, broom wagon, electronic timing and more – it’s everything you’d expect from a European style sportive. Once back at the event HQ riders will be treated to a hot meal, a goodie bag from sponsors Santini and a finishers medal – and all for just £28.00 per rider.
Entry for the 2015 Santini Cotswold Spring Classic opens at 8am on Friday (5th) and is sure to fill up its 800 spaces quickly. For more details, and to enter the event, visit www.cotswoldspringclassic.co.uk
