Speeding round Old Buckenham

Racing around Old Buckenham Green
One of last year's races
Before you go on the gentle village cycle ride on Sunday 4 September, there is the chance to see some really speedy cycle racing on the previous day.
Diss and District Cycling Club and Breckland District Council were impressed by the large crowds that watched the Tour of Britain flash through Old Buckenham in 2015 and the success of the first ever Crit Racing on closed roads around the village green. Now they have decided to make Crit Racing an annual event as part of a two-day cycling festival in 2016.
The Crit Racing will be on closed roads on a 1.1km circuit around the Green and will be held on Saturday 3 September. 

This is serious cycle racing. The National B event is the Eastern Road Race League Criterium Championships,the Ladies Race will be part of the Womens Eastern Race League and the Youth races part of the Eastern Region Youth Racing Series (ERYRS).
Electronic race results will be by Norfolk Cycle Race Judging and will ensure that every rider is given a finishing position using the MyLaps transponder system.
The Crit Racing is being organised by Diss and District Cycling Club, with the support of Breckland District Council, and under the rules of British Cycling.
