We are proud to announce The Hibbs Lupus Trust as the official charity partner for the 2012 Stafford GP.
Some of Britain’s top cyclists will converge on Stafford to compete in the 3rd Round of the British Cycling Elite Circuit Race Series, a season long competition that showcases the nations fastest and most skillful riders in this short-course version of road racing.
The new partnership will see the event make a number of commitments to help raise awareness and money for the The Hibbs Lupus Trust, including a new opportunity for the public to get directly involved in raising money for the charity with the creation of the Lupus Lap, which is a one off chance for the public to ride the course the professionals will take on later in the same evening.
The Lupus Lap will be open to 100 participants who will each pay a small entry fee to ride a lap of the professional course before the Stafford Grand Prix itself kicks off on the evening of the 4th July. The ‘Lupus Lappers’ then ride the worlds shortest sportive (0.65 miles / 1km) – one lap of the professional course before the start of the professional race. Each participant gets a commemorative number to pin to their jersey which they get to keep as a souvenir of the event.
The Lupus Lap entry is now open via the British Cycling website.
The Stafford Grand Prix takes place on the evening of the 4th July with the start of the Lupus Lap at 19:25. Visit Staffordgp.co.uk for more details.
Lupus Lap entry fees will go to The Hibbs Lupus Trust!
