The Suffolk Cycle Racing Series has today announced its dates for 2014 along with a new sponsor for the series – Maglia Rosso.

With an expectation of attracting more than 1,400 participants to the six midweek series starting June 11 and a standalone event on July 12, the series organisers are thrilled to receive input from a new Suffolk-based business.

The Ipswich-based series offers closed circuit road racing opportunities for new and experienced riders.

Since 2011 the series has grown in attendance with races staged for riders aged seven years and upwards.

Series chairman Tim Snook said: “We are extremely pleased to confirm dates for our fourth successive year and the new support from Maglia Rosso. The series is targeted by cycling enthusiasts and the growth of the series has been spectacular.

“Gaining support and input from local businesses only helps to provide a more professional event that everyone can enjoy.”

Maglia Rosso is a Cycle Shop and Destination Café currently being established in the former Metcalfe Arms pub in Hawstead, near Bury St Edmunds.
