What happens in the Bristol Grand Prix?

The race circuit is only 1.3km long which means that the riders will pass you a lot. It’s also a good idea to explore the circuit, there are plenty of corners where the racing gets more exciting.

  • The bridge at the bottom of Park Street next to Cafe du Jour lets you see the riders twice per lap.
  • The fastest point on the circuit will be the mini roundabout part way along St George Street, the riders cross it twice per lap and both times it’s at the bottom of a downhill.
  • The start/finish is on Park Street by the entrance to Unity Street, and there will be sprint prizes during each race to add to the excitement.
  • The winner of a bike race is not always the strongest person. Races involve teams, alliances, friendships and competition.
  • Bike racing is a team sport. Each team has a team leader. The other members of the team try to help their leader take the victory.
  • The main group of racers is called the peloton. Smaller groups, known as breakaways, will try to escape from the peloton and keep their advantage to the finish.
  • A city centre race has a lot of tight corners, meaning that the skilled riders and small groups of riders should have an advantage.

Enjoy the race!
