SOME of Britain’s leading female cyclists will return to battle this summer at the five round Johnson Health Tech Grand Prix Series taking place during May and June.
Aylsham in Norfolk, and Ipswich in Suffolk, both make their debuts, hosting the final two rounds of the Johnson Health Tech Grand Prix Series on consecutive evenings – June 13 and Friday 14. Colchester will also hold a round for the second consecutive season, while Woking hosts its third round of Britain’s leading women’s cycle race Series.
The Series gets underway in Stoke-on-Trent, scene of the 2012 final round, and home of title sponsors Johnson Health Tech UK Ltd.
Managing director of Johnson Health Tech UK Jon Johnson said: “The 2012 Grand Prix Series was a fantastic showcase for women’s cycling in the UK, providing a wonderful opportunity for developing riders to battle against some of the UK's best women riders – head-to-head – in front of the TV cameras.
“Feedback also suggests that the Series raises public awareness of women’s cycling and sport, and is helping in a moderate way to encourage more women to get involved in fitness and physical activity.
“This helps us meet some of our corporate social objectives, and, combined with the increase in public awareness of our company that the event generates, it’s a win-win situation for us to partner with The Pearl Izumi Tour Series, the host cities, and the organisers, SweetSpot.”
