Welcome to the official website of the annual Otley Cycle Races. Thanks for watching in 2019. We'll be back in 2020 - the 35th consecutive year that this scinitilating evening of high class racing has been run in the picturesque Yorkshire Market town of Otley.
The Otley Town Centre Races are one of the most prestigious criteriums in the calendar, with past winners including Mark Cavendish, Jeremy Hunt, Jonny Clay, Chris Walker, Russ Downing and in 2011 and 2012, local star Scott Thwaites. Otley's own World Champion Lizzie Armitstead won the women's event in 2014!

“The crowds are usually
10 people deep in the home straight as people
gather to catch a glimpse of the action!”
