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.

3 Year deal with Specialized ends.

After a 3 year partnership with the Dartmoor Classic sportive, bike brand Specialized have announced they will not be renewing their contract, with the organising Mid-Devon Cycling Club, for next year’s event. “Specialized have been incredibly supportive of our flagship promotion and their invaluable contributions have allowed the club to take the event to a much higher level than would have been possible without their involvement.” said Ron Keegan the event’s promoter. “We are really appreciative of all that the company have brought to the event and fully understand the need for them to now pursue alternative and emerging marketing opportunities.” he added.
