2020 Rapha Lincoln Grand Prix & Supporting Events Cancelled
It is with great sadness that we have to announce the cancellation Rapha Lincoln Grand Prix 2020.
While we had hoped to move from May to the alternative date of 15th-16th August, we have decided to cancel this year’s race following discussions with British Cycling.
Suspension of international and national racing in Britain was this week extended to September 1 as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic and that means we must now look forward to next year.
We would like to thank our title sponsors Rapha and presenting sponsors MinebeaMitsumi, alongside Lincoln City Council and the Michaelgate Hill Dash sponsors Newells who have all been very supportive.
We will announce plans for 2021 as soon as we have them available.
In the mean time please take care and stay safe and we look forward to seeing you in 2021!
Rapha Lincoln Grand Prix & Supporting Events Postponed
It is with great sadness that we have to announce the postponement of the Rapha Lincoln Grand Prix 2020, following the announcement from British Cycling that all events are suspended until June 30th.
During the last 2 weeks as a pre-emptive measure we have been working on plans to look for an alternative date to enable us to try to maintain the unbroken run of events from 1956 so we have managed to move the event to the weekend of 15-16th August.
The planned new schedule will be as follows:
- Bike Night - 15th August
- Lincoln GP Sportive - 15th August
- Newells Michaelgate Hill Dash - 15th August
- Rapha Lincoln Grand Prix presented by MinebeaMitsumi - 16th August
We would like to thank our title sponsors Rapha and presenting sponsors MinebeaMitsumi and the Michaelgate Hill Dash sponsors Newells who have been very supportive and are fully behind the event and the new date.
The above date will obviously be subject to the suspension of events being lifted and that Police support and Medical cover will be available.
Therefore in line with Government advice please stay at home and let's try and help things pass as quickly as possible and hope we can go ahead with this new August date.
