British Cycling Head of Sport and Major Events, Jonathan Day, said: “We’re delighted to once again be able to offer extensive coverage of next week’s championships to fans across Britain and further afield, helping us to further raise the profile of our major domestic events and showcase the unique thrills of time-trial, circuit and road racing in the beautiful surroundings of Dumfries and Galloway.
“While we know that all eyes will be on the racing, I’m sure that the historic backdrop of the Crichton Estate, the harbour views in Kirkcudbright and the winding lanes of Castle Douglas will have many fans at home plotting their own trips to the region, particularly as it looks ahead to hosting the para-cycling road events at next year’s UCI Cycling World Championships.”
Coverage of the events will be provided by Century Television, which has 15 years’ experience of working in cycling as host broadcaster for the Tour of Britain and Women’s Tour, Tour Series and Prudential RideLondon.
