Kingston Lacy sportive still on!
Despite contrary statement from a sponsor, National Trust Sportive on July 3 at Kingston Lacey is to go ahead as planned.
Earlier this week we received a statement from Santini explaining that due to a clash with the MacMillan Cancer Support Dorset Bike Ride the Santini Sportive, starting from the National Trust property at Kingston Lacy on July 3 was off. Looks like it isn’t. Organisers VOTWO have released this statement to say the 50 and 80 mile rides – now the National Trust Sportives – are definitely still on!
“In response to recently published reports you may have seen in the cycling media that the Kingston Lacy Sportive event has been cancelled. This is not the case. Despite clothing sponsor Santini having withdrawn their sponsorship from the event Votwo and the National Trust are making no changes to their planned Kingston Lacy Sportive. Santini withdrawing there involvement in the event will not affect the running of the event and we look forward to seeing you on July 3rd.”
A few weeks ago I took part in a recce ride of the 50-mile route. It’s a nice route – not overly tough but with a cheeky climb up Zig Zag Hill on the B3061, reputedly Britain’s twistiest road.
