Organisers, Mid Devon Cycling Club, have reported another rapid 'sell-out' for the 10th running of the popular Dartmoor Classic Sportive which takes place over the weekend of 25th and 26th June 2016.

"The website opened for the 2016 Classic at 08:00, offering 4,000 places across 3 rides, the Grande at 105 miles, the Medio as 65 and the Piccolo at 35. By midday, the Piccolo was sold out with the Medio and Grande reaching capacity within 48 hours." Guy Langworthy, event Chairman told us.

"This is the fourth year running that we've sold out during our opening weekend which is testimony to how popular the event has become."

"This year's event is the tenth running of the Classic, the initial event attracted around 500 riders and it has grown consistently since then, to today's 4,000 capacity. To celebrate we've launched a new special edition 'Dartmoor Classic 10th anniversary" jersey which will be available to riders."

"We're introducing a number of special features to this year's event which will be announced over the next few months. We're also able to announce a new partnership with leading sports nutrition brand Etixx, sponsors of the Etixx -Quick Step World Tour team, who will be providing the drinks and nutritional products for riders."

"The event village is looking likely to be bigger than ever and we expect to attract more than 10,000 visitors over the event weekend."
