The 2018 HSBC UK | National Road Championships will be broadcast live on ITV. ITV’s broadcast will begin at 3pm, with highlights of the women’s road race followed by the live culmination of the men’s race. The programme will then be available on the ITV Hub for 27 days after the event.

The flagship race of the British domestic road calendar will be the final event of the 2018 Cyclone Festival of Cycling and takes place in Northumberland on July 1.

In addition, leading the world-class field of riders vying for the coveted red, white and blue national champion’s jersey in the men's race will be Steve Cummings, the defending road race and time trial champion.

Last year, the Dimension Data rider became the first rider since David Millar in 2007 to seal the rare double.


The elite races sandwich an exciting two days of mass participation rides: the leisurely Tyne 6 Bridges ride (June 29) and the ever-popular Cyclone Challenge Rides (June 30).

Sunday’s road races will round-off what promises to be a spectacular weekend of cycling. The women's race will be in the morning over 106km, with the hotly contested men's race due to place over a total distance of 185km in the afternoon, with both races finishing in the picturesque village of Stamfordham.
