ISLAND TO HOST MAJOR NEW EVENT
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS
The Isle of Man Cycling Association and IOM Govt DED were disappointed not to have been awarded the honour of staging the British National Cycling Road Race Championships in 2016 after partaking in a prolonged bid process....
Feedback from British Cycling indicated that the bid was very strong however it fell short on the fact that the Isle of Man lacked a current ‘track record’ in promoting Senior Elite Road Races. The last time the top echelon of British Cycle Sport appeared on Manx roads was in 2003 when Manx International Cycling Week was staged for the last time.
We are pleased to announce that continued discussions with British Cycling and IOMG DED led to a bid to host a round of the British Elite Road Series in 2016. If this event is successful it will be staged annually and will lead to another bid to host the British National Championships in 2018.
The event is scheduled for the afternoon of Sunday 10th April 2016.
This is a major event that is covered by Eurosport and will show the Island in a positive light.
Part of the British Elite Championship Series the event will bring the top echelon of British Cycle Sport back to Manx roads on Sunday 10th April 2016. It will be an annual event which will lead to the Island bidding to host the British National Road Championships in 2018.
We need 250 volunteers to act as Stewards and Marshals on the day…..can you help us please?
The duty hours will be from 12.30 pm to 6.00 pm at the latest. Lots of volunteers will be ‘stood down’ from approximately 4.00 pm onwards. The duty tasks will not be onerous or complicated, it will be mostly providing a ‘hi viz’ presence, marshalling barrier positions and helping people to cross the roads etc all with a big smile! The volunteers will be the ‘happy face’ of the event.
All volunteers will be entered into a raffle with some great prizes on offer and will receive some souvenir clothing.
If you can help us stage this exciting new event please let us know as soon as possible by contacting us at; firstname.lastname@example.org or via the event website contact page www.manxinternational.com
