The series is one of the few events in the calendar that provides TV exposure for the domestic teams – important for many sponsors. And it also brings domestic road racing into town centres, something which many National Road Series events are unable to do.

Canyon dhb p/b Bloor Homes are reigning champions of the men’s series, having won it in impressive style in 2019, whilst Brother UK – Tifosi p/b OnForm pipped Team Breeze to the women’s title in the same year.
