Lincoln Grand Prix Sportive 2016

Monday, 25th July 2016

The day started off cool, but the sun came out just in time to see the return of some 1200 riders enjoying the Lincoln Grand Prix, our annual local event which features a weekend of amateur and pro events. This year Impsport sponsored the Sportive events, ranging from a mini 10 miles to a whopping 102 miles. Routes were varied for all levels of experience and took in some stunning scenery along the edge of the Wolds and the world famous Michaelgate climb at the end (catching out some, stopping others in their tracks) up the cobbled streets to Lincoln’s Castle Square.

Due to the success of the National Road Championships and Lincoln Grand Prix Sportive commemorative jersey range in 2015 we decided to again offer a great quality jersey as a memento of this year’s events. Running an event or sportive in the future – how about offering a great jersey like ours?

Impsport were on hand at the start and end of the routes handing out free sportive T-Shirts (which everyone loved) and we received great feedback about the course and the organisation of the events. Riders were welcomed home to some top-notch grub, including hotdogs, burgers, sandwiches and the scrumptious hog roast. Vegetarians were also catered for, a nice touch by organisers ITP Events.  

Impsport are out and about all summer – checkout the events near you or contact us for details about how Impsport can help your club, team or event!
