    Story

    We would like to get the Rutland-Melton International CiCLE Classic pro race televised. We believe a whole generation would benefit from seeing this race broadcast on TV and more visibility of our national teams competing alongside international teams will get people inspired.
    The race has developed from a promising new event on the British cycle racing calendar in 2005, to quite possibly the most attractive one day pro cycle race Britain has to offer.

    Already known & loved by a wide audience, the on and off-road pro cycle race is a national and international treasure and in 2016 will be in its 12th year.
    Yet because of the impact of TV on sport these days, the race is still waiting to make the breakthrough it deserves. With your help it can do.
    Hugh Porter MBE, CiCLE Classic race commentator, TV & radio personality & winner of four world cycling titles, said: "It would be tremendous to see the CiCLE Classic get live TV coverage."

    Event takes place on 24th April 2016. Century TV / ITV4 are current favourites to produce an hour's show - exact date to be agreed. Previous competitors include Mark Cavendish, Peter Sagan, Magnus Backstedt, Matt Stephens. Previous race winners are Scot Gamble (2005), Robin Sharman (2006), Malcolm Elliott (2007) Keiran Power (2008), Ian Wilkinson (2009 & 13) Michael Berlin (2010), Zak Dempster (2011), Alex Blain (2012), Tom Moses (2014), Steele von Hoff (2015)

    £15,000 will go towards the £25,000 in total needed to cover filming costs in 2016. We already have some wonderful sponsors but any support from crowd-funding will be recognised with credits in the TV production, in the race programme, on the website and receive special race access. In future years our intention is to attract a TV specific sponsor.
