2023 Lincoln GP Race Preview

May 14th sees the 68th edition of the Lincoln GP crushing the cobbles of Lincoln’s Michaelgate

This year’s Lincoln GP is the first round of British Cycling’s Men’s National Road Series and the second for the Women’s Series. Riders will race on an eight mile lap that takes them up the infamous Michaelgate climb. Although “only” 0.2km long and 33 metres high, it has pitches of 20% along its 11% average. And remember the women will be tackling it eight times during their race while the men will go up it thirteen times.

The women’s field will number around 140 riders and will feature the top UK teams, all competing for the winner’s Cobblestone Trophy and a share of the £2400 prize fund. The men also compete for their own Cobbelstone Trophy and the same prize fund. The men’s race has a full field with reserves waiting to get a ride: it’s going to be busy up MIchaelgate!

We’ve been following some of the teams in their previous races such as the ANEXO/CAMS Women’s CiCLE Classic, and the Finsbury Park CC Road Race. We’ve also reported on some of the teams’ continental exploits such as DAS-Handsling’s double victory in Belgium and teams heading to the Leidal-Koerse. This should lead to some aggressive racing, with the those riders that have already ridden on the cobbles maybe having an advantage up the Michaelgate?

This year sees Rapha continuing in their role as title sponsor since stepping in to save the race back in 2020. And stepping up as Presenting Sponsor is Wattbike. With Wattbike stepping in to help with sponsorship and Rapha upping their financial commitment, it looks like the Lincoln GP is safe.

Along with the main race on Sunday, ITP Events are running the Lincoln GP Sportive on the Saturday. This will give you a chance to tackle the closed-road climb of Michaelgate, just like the following day’s racers: without the accumulated fatigue! You can choose from three routes of 164, 99, or 56 kilometres. And once you’ve finished you could head over to the Rapha Archive Sale at the Blue Room. So that could be a whole weekend of riding your bike, watching others race theirs and buying cycling kit: is there a better way to spend a weekend? The women are off first at 0900, with the men at 1300.
