Jurys Inn have been announced as the headline sponsor when cycling’s Tour Series hits Wembley Park next month.

The May 16 event will be the first time Wembley has hosted a leg of the nationwide series, which sees Britain’s leading male and female cyclists battle on closed curcuit courses.

The Wembley course will be 1.5km in length and take in the concourse of Wembley Stadium and Olympic Way, known to fans the world over as Wembley Way.

Jason Carruthers, managing director of Jurys Inn said; “The race is already set to be one of the most exciting ever and we’re confident that race-goers and visitors will enjoy this iconic event.”

The Wembley Park round, presented by Jurys Inn, will feature an afternoon of community events and non-elite activities on the circuit from 11am onwards, before the Brother Corporate Grand Prix kicks off the racing at 4.30pm, with up to 15 teams battling it out in a ProAm relay format.

Spectators can look forward to seeing 13 top women’s teams in the Matrix Fitness Grand Prix Series race at 6.30pm before the men take to the course at 8.30pm.

Race director Mick Bennett said; “We are delighted to be bringing The Tour Series to Wembley Park and welcome the news of the partnership with Jurys Inn to elevate the profile of the event further still.

“We are privileged to have the opportunity to race in this spectacular location and one that is so synonymous with world-class sporting events.”

The Tour Series will get underway at Redditch in Worcestershire on Tuesday, May 9, and finish three weeks later in Stevenage on Bank Holiday Monday, May 29.

Highlights of every round of The Tour Series will be shown on ITV4.
