The Beaumont Trophy, one of 11 events within the Virgin Money Cyclone’s four day festival of cycling, has won recognition from the Union Cycliste International (UCI).

As the Cyclone’s headline race, the Beaumont Trophy has been classified a European tour event, making it one of just four UCI road races to be held in the UK in 2014.

Confirmed to ride the event are all five British UCI Continental Teams: Rapha; Madison Genesis; Raleigh; Velosure and NTFO. Two Continental teams have already confirmed they will compete in the June event, with more to be announced.

Previous winners of the acclaimed race, which was first run in 1952, include Bradley Wiggins, Chris Newton, Russell Downing, Dean Downing, Malcolm Elliott and Don Sanderson. The most prolific winner of the Trophy is Ray Wetherell who has won it five times. Bradley Wiggins has been awarded the Trophy twice, once as National Champion in 2011.

The event will mark the first time the North East has played host to a UCI road event. Speaking on the accreditation, Virgin Money Cyclone Founder and Organiser, Peter Harrison, said: “We’re extremely proud to bring a new UCI event to the North East of England, particularly as there has never been an event of this stature staged in the area before.”
