Tickhill Grand Prix gets a title sponsor

The Tickhill Grand Prix has been renamed, thanks to a new sponsorship deal with an electrical giant.

The closed road cycle race through the streets of Tickhill on 24th August will be known as The YESSS Tickhill Grand Prix, after a three-year agreement was reached with YESSS Electrical.

Boasting eight races, free admission, and close to the action spectating, this promises to be a great day for all the family.

YESSS ELECTRICAL see this as a major national promotion as the race will attract professional riders and teams from all over the country, as well as supporting grassroots Youth Racing.

Shaun Myers, head of design and marketing at YESSS said: “The Tickhill Grand Prix is an amazing event.”

“We were impressed by the effort and dedication that the organising team at Tickhill Velo Club put into their first event in 2013 and realized the huge potential of this great day.”

“The Tickhill Grand Prix has a similar story to ours, success and growth that has come purely from the efforts and service put in by excellent staff and we had no hesitation in supporting them.”

Richard Stoodley from Tickhill Grand Prix expressed his delight at attracting a title sponsor.

“It is amazing to have attracted such a dynamic, high profile company such as YESSS ELECTRICAL.”

“It may look like a little village but the Tickhill Grand Prix is set to be one of the biggest town centre ‘crit’ style races in the UK, and it is the support of YESSS that has allowed us to fulfill our ambitions.”

He continued, “We are thrilled to be associated with YESSS and look forward to putting on a great event.”

The Tickhill Grand Prix hosts eight races from 1pm untill 7.45pm and these include Professional Elite – both men and women - Penny Farthing Race and a host of amateur and youth races.
