SOME of the country’s leading cyclists - and future Olympians - are set to compete in Doncaster for the title of ‘North of England’ champion in December.

After last year’s successful inaugural event, the Keepmoat Stadium will again play host to a day of championship cycle racing.

The cyclo-cross championship will see riders young and old battle it out on a tough off road course at the Lakeside.

Racing starts at 11am on Sunday, December 9, with the youth category followed by the Under 12s, veterans, ladies and finally the elite adults at 2pm.

The winners of each race will be crowned ‘North of England’ champions.

Catering and cycle trade stands will be also on site during the action-packed event, which is aimed at all of the family.

The event is being run by Doncaster Wheelers and British Cycling.
