Following the success in recent years of the Ipswich Cycle Racing Series at Trinity Park, the event has continued to grow and has been re-named the ‘Suffolk Cycle Racing Series’.

This reflects and acknowledges the wider range of the series and involvement of several Suffolk cycling clubs in organising and promoting the series.

As a launch to tonight’s opening Wednesday Evening series meeting, a day of races for all levels was held on Sunday at Trinity Park and riders from across the region provided some close and exciting racing.

Despite many attempts by riders to make a break, most were unsuccessful and finished in a group sprint for the major placings.

The cool weather conditions saw 118 riders across the categories take part and some excellent racing took place. The track was in good condition and the hard nature of the course always sorts out the strong riders in each category.

BT, Strip Tees printing and Suffolk County Council have all provided financial help towards the costs of running the series.

Tonight sees the first of the 2013 series with points gained on each evening going towards an overall series champion at the end of the six weeks.
