The First Leicester Castle Classic
My film features cycling action from the first ever Leicester Castle Classic Professional Bike Race.
The 20 lap race took place on 18th August 2013 around a route that took in some well known landmarks of the city of Leicester,
From the start/finish line at Bede Park on Western Boulevard the route took the riders into old Leicester though the tight cobblestoned medieval gateways and lanes the area is known for,
The route then looped back onto Western Boulevard before making a sharp left crossing the river soar and continuing down to the King Power football stadium home of Leicester City FC before retuning to Bede Park.
The race was preceded by a 'Shoppers and Choppers' race and a 'Corporate challenge' both open to the general public.
