On Sunday of last weekend the Staffordshire Cycling Festival entertained spectators and participants alike in Stafford. Pickering & Butters, who had sponsored the event, also had two participants in the sportive which made its way out of the town centre and through the countryside of Staffordshire ending finishing in the Market Square.
Whilst sportives are not strictly races, there were very good results for our riders who came 3rd and 6th across the line on the 40 mile circuit. Later in the evening, the crowds in town were entertained by the professional Grand Prix race.
Partner, James Wallbank, who took part in the sportive commented, “It was a great day for all those who took part in what was a challenging sportive ride, and also a great evening for those who came along to watch the pros in the evening. We were really pleased to support the local event and see so many people come into the town on Sunday to offer their support. Hopefully we will see the event return next year”.
