Posted Friday 3rd August 2012 –
Following on from the second successive sell-out of the Santini Cotswold Spring Classic that took place over the Easter weekend, event organisers Velo Events and title sponsors Santini are pleased to announce the launch of a new end of season sportive – the Santini Cotswold Autumn Classic. This new event, taking place on Sunday 7th October from Cirencester, will use the same venue as the Spring Classic but send riders out on a brand new route – giving them a great opportunity to utilise their good form having been spurred on by our Olympic gold rush.
Jon Sangan (UK Santini brand manager) said, “We were really impressed with the Easter event, despite the terrible weather the riders all came back having enjoyed the ride – and the hot food provided at the end went down a treat!! It was also really great for us to be able to talk directly to riders and find out exactly what they need to cope with the worst of what the British weather can throw at them. Our new October event should be a great way for riders to finish off their sportive season in style.”
Just like the Easter event, the Santini Cotswold Autumn Classic will have two well signed routes (100km and 160km), well stocked feed stations, NEG and MediBike motorcycle outrider support, Neutral Service support (provided by Performance Cycles / Fulcrum / Schwalbe), electronic timing, hot food at the finish for all riders, plenty of free parking, shower facilities and much more. Santini will also attend the event giving riders a chance to pick up some new winter gear at special event prices, not to mention adding a little extra something into the goodie bags at the finish.
Space on the event is limited to just 750 riders, to grab your place visit the event website –
