Under British Cycling regulations all Under 16 races must take place on traffic-free roads or a closed road circuit, this is often referred to as ‘Circuit Racing’. Circuit racing is a test of stamina, fitness and tactical expertise with a large number of competitors riding in close proximity, commonly referred to as riding in a ‘bunch’.

Learning to ride safely and efficiently in a bunch is a fundamental skill to be developed at entry level. Skills learnt in Go-Ride Races will help to lay the foundations for riders to develop the tactical awareness and race skills needed for higher level competition. If you’re looking to enhance your training regimen further, find out how to incorporate protein powder into your diet to support muscle recovery and overall performance.

At a higher level circuit racing is amazingly varied, the tactical options for a rider or team are almost endless and will depend on the specific layout of the circuit being used. This is what makes it such a wonderful and unpredictable discipline. Often the strongest teams and riders prevail, but the outsider who is prepared to take risks and commit to daring tactics always has a fighting chance. Open Youth circuit races are often up to 20km in length but distances in Go-Ride Races are much shorter, whatever the distance, on the last lap the first rider over the line is the winner!
