N.B. It is regretted that owing to a severe deterioration in the condition of the track along the ‘Barrowberg’ section of the course it has been necessary to omit the two passages of that part of the course on this occasion. This decision was taken reluctantly, but in the interest of both rider and vehicle safety.

King of the Hills competition decided as follows:

  • Points awarded to the first three riders : 3, 2, 1 at the line outside the ‘Black Bull’ public house in Market Overton on laps 2, 3 and 4.
  • The rider with the highest points score overall takes the prize.


Competitor parking:

Official parking is available for Junior race competitors in either of the following two Oakham School car parks.

  • Schanschieffs (signed ‘Garthorpe’ & ‘Hambledon’) Off Ashwell Road, Oakham (Approx 100 places)
  • ‘Buchanans’ off Ashwell road.(Approx. 50 places)   BOTH OPEN 07.15

Both these car parks are within 150 mts of the HQ building which will be signposted from each. PLEASE NOTE that the High Street adjacent to the Market Place will be closed to all non-race official vehicles from 08.00 until approx. 12.30 on the morning of the race. ONLY officially accredited race vehicles will be able to enter this area at any time during these hours and they must do so via the PPO located at the junction of Church Street and High Street. If relocating to spectate at the start and finish all vehicles are recommended to use one or other of the two public car parks in Church Street or Burley Road.

Radio Channel and frequency:

The Radio system, channel and frequency to be used for all race vehicles will be as follows:

  • Radio Tour (Junior CiCLE Classic) 3125 mHz  CTCSS/DCS    67.0      (Channel 1)

Riders Instructions:

  1. The Race HQ at the Oakham School Sports Centre will be open from 07.30 hrs. Please leave the changing rooms clean and tidy, and DO NOT wear cycling shoes inside the building. Thank you.
  2. Allocated body numbers and transponders issued must be properly affixed as instructed and returned to the HQ after the event.
  3. All riders must be at the start line in the High Street (approximately 5 minutes from the race HQ) no later than 08.50. (See exact timings above)
  4. Because the Junior race is timed to fit into a ‘window’ around the start and return passage through Oakham of the International race the race will start promptly at 09.10.
  5. In order to comply with time restrictions laid down within the Road Closure arrangements any rider deemed to be no longer part of the ‘effective race’ may be withdrawn either at the conclusion of Lap 5 at Teigh. (Point 20 on the course route below). All riders withdrawn should proceed directly to the race HQ rather than continuing to follow the race route.
  6. An official feed zone is provided on the main circuit just after the sharp left turn on reaching Thistleton, on the rise before turning first left towards Wymondham and before the second left. The zone will be marked at both its start and finish.
  7. Neutral service in the form of one car and one moto will travel with the race. Properly registered team cars and drivers will also be allowed to accompany the race.
  8. The last 200 mts of the race are not straight and shortly before the finish line there are two mini roundabouts. ALL riders are recommended to check this part of the course out before starting the race. (N.B The start and finish lines are the same.)
  9. The first three riders and the King of the Hills winner will be required to immediately attend the podium for race presentations after finishing the race.
  10. The finish of the Junior Classic forms a short time window between the start and the return of the international race through Oakham. All riders are therefore requested to assist race officials by clearing the actual roadway in the High Street as quickly as possible after finishing the race. STRICTLY NO Race Vehicles to be PARKED IN High Street after the finish. Thank you.
