British National Road Championships Riders Announced

A STAR-STUDDED line up has been announced for the British National Road Championships in Dumfries and Galloway next month.

Mark Cavendish, Pfeiffer Georgi, Ethan Hayter, Anna Henderson and Ben Swift have been named amongst the riders set to compete for the coveted national champion’s jerseys.

All five national champions from the 2021 championships in Lincoln – Georgi, Swift, Henderson, Hayter and Jo Tindley – will be competing in this year’s races from Thursday June 23 to Sunday June 26.

The time-trial, circuit and road championships will be brought together once again into an unmissable week of racing. The championships begin with time-trials at The Crichton in Dumfries. Six-time national champion Alex Dowsett, who missed out last year through illness, will join last year’s podium of Hayter, Dan Bigham and James Shaw. In the elite women’s category, last year’s podium riders, Henderson, Lowden and Dixon, will all be returning. The under-23 categories feature the ones to watch, including Leo Hayter, Lewis Askey and 2021 junior champion Finley Pickering.

For the circuit race Jo Tindley will look to defend her title on a technical circuit in Kirkcudbright, her teammate Corinne Side will also be looking to make the podium. Harry Tanfield and Lewis Askey will each be hoping to better their podium finishes from last year.

In the road race, Ben Swift will look to make it a hat-trick of national titles, but he will face competition from Mark Cavendish. Defending champion Georgi will be amongst the favourite in the women’s race, Shackley, Smith and Henderson are also likely to be in the frame. While 2019 winner Alice Barnes will also be eyeing a return to the podium.

The event is taking place in Dumfries and Galloway thanks to support from EventScotland and Dumfries and Galloway Council.
