Anglia Sport – API – Metrow Foods- BodybyJR present the 2023 Criterium des Vainqueurs, a classic end of season criterium which has an enviable list of previous winners from UK, Belgium, Holland and Poland.
For many years the end of season criterium was one of the countries most prestigious criteriums on the calendar, held at the end of the season it was a requirement that all riders were winners that year, the list of winners is stacked with big names from the different eras, in 1981 it was run as the British National Championships and won by Mark Bell, riders have come from the UK and mainland Europe often attracting an international field, it was always fast and hard and worthy winners won! for many years the event was held at Colchester Barracks and this year after an absence of nearly 40 years..it’s back! But now at the new Colchester Sports Park Cycle Circuit.
Promoted by API-Anglia Sport the team managed by past winner Andy Palmer is for Masters Cyclists run under the BMCR banner, the requirement to be a winner on entry no longer stands and all masters 40 years and over are welcome and can race in their own categories
