Rutland-Melton CiCLE Classic 2013

Frenchman Alex Blain won the race for Endura-Racing in 2012

It was announced in February that our Giant-Rutland store and Schwalbe Tyres joined forces to secure the future of what has in recent years been the UK's leading one-day race, the Rutland-Melton CiCLE Classic.

With the UCI 1.2-ranked race just around the corner (Sunday 21st April from 11am), we take a closer look at the the prestigious Rutland-Melton CiCLE Classic.


The race will start at 11am (Market Square, Oakham) and will travel directly past our Giant-Rutland store at approximately 11.15am where Rutland Cycling employees will be watching the pro riders as they pass. Please feel free to join us for this section of the race.


The race will then pass through, Langham, Pickwell, Somerby, Owston, Borrough-on-the-Hill, Whissendine and Burton Lazars before finishing in Melton Mowbray at approximately 15.25pm.

The full route can be found here:


This race, that's now in it's 9th year, has previously seen the likes of Mark Cavendish as part of a 160 strong line-up and will this year see Olympic Team Pursuit Gold Medallist Ed Clancy riding in a team with last years second placed James McCallum.


The 2012 edition was won by Frenchman, Alex Blain (Endura Racing) despite weather so atrocious that a large percentage of riders didn't even finish the race, further enhancing the reputation that the CiCLE Classic has been merited with. Alex Blain will be riding again this year but he will be flying the flag for Team Raleigh.

Watch the race with us

For the first time in the races history, the riders will cycle past our Giant-Rutland store where we are inviting you to come and watch the prestigious race with us. The 34 confirmed teams are expected to cycle past the front of the store at approximately 11.15am, it'd be great to see you there!
