Chris Bates represents Team GB at the 
UCI World Cycling Tour Final 2015

It gives us great pleasure to send you this initial report of Beeston Cycling Club’s very own Chris Bates who represented Team GB at the UCI World Cycling Tour Final 2015, Time Trials & Road Race - Aalborg & Hobro, Denmark.

See our Club Facebook page for more images.

Many thanks go to BCC members Sally, Richard and Dave for supporting Chris in Denmark and to Beeston Cycling Club and last but not least the sponsors: RizkMcCay, PN Design, Stirland Paterson Print, Oakes Insurance Consultants and Willmott Dixon. Their additional sponsorship for this specific event has been vital.

Time Trials
Chris finished 36 out of 56 in his age group and was the third fastest Brit. He was unlucky with the weather in so far as it was raining heavily when he set off. 

Road Race
Despite a puncture and slow neutral support Chris battled back to finish 69th out of 187 and was the 5th Brit overall. 

Chris had to ride the last 18 miles alone into a strong headwind.

Whilst Sally and Richard were at the first Feed Zone they saw very little of the race. They were however getting Beeston Cycling Club's name out there as they were both in sponsored club kit helping to hand out bottles. Some girls and guys shouted out "Hello Beeston" or "Thank you Beeston!"


Our Sponsored Beeston CC Race Team have just won the EMRRL team and general clasification title. we will produce a full report soon. What a great first season!
