Sheffield Grand Prix
Who needs the Champs-Elysées when we’ve got our own Grand Arrivée on Pinstone Street? The annual Sheffield Grand Prix attracts world-class athletes to Sheffield's city centre. This July, the Grand Prix will once again play host to the HSBC UK National Circuit Championships, a high-tempo evening of criterium racing on Wednesday 18 July.
Criterium races – for those who don’t know their pedal from their peleton – are fast, tough, exciting events, where riders compete over a number of laps or within a set time. Spectators can gather outside the Town Hall, pick up refreshments, browse stalls and watch serious cyclists get in the zone before they whizz off on the race.
