Welcome to the official website of the annual DM Keith Skoda Otley Cycle Races.

2014 is a big year for us. Not only will it be the 29th year we’ve run these races but this year the Tour de France will roll through Otley just a couple of days after the races. Why not make a week of it, come and watch the racing at Otley and then stay on to see the biggest bike race in the World?

We are again hosting the opening round of the British Cycling Elite Circuit Race Series and the Pinsent Masons Women’s race will be part of the British Cycling Women’s Road Series.  With equal billing to the well-established men’s race the Women’s race will see some of the UK’s best women racers again compete around the legendary Otley circuit. This year's event will consist of the Pinsent Masons Otley Women’s GP, The Property Development Otley GP, The Chevin Cycles Classic Race, The MAS Design Super Prestige Youth Race (for under 16 riders) and the WGC Landscapes Lads and Lasses Bike Race (for under 14 riders). Please see the ‘Race Info' page for more.
