Phil Liggett Sportive set for August 7

Cycling commentator Phil Liggett will ride the Peak District sportive on August 7

If you’ve been watching ITV4’s daily Tour de France highlights show, you’ll be familiar with the voice of Phil Liggett – here’s your chance to ride with him on Sunday August 7.

Liggett has been commentating on the Tour for more than 25 years and was also race director of the Milk Race for 25 years – and the CTC Phil Liggett Sportive and Challenge Ride will scale some of the iconic Peak District climbs from the race.

The ride tackles Holme Moss, Winnats Pass and Monsal Head, with two routes – 100km and 150km – available, with the long option packing in more than 2,600m of climbing.

The courses will be fully signposted, with fully-stocked feed stops, electronic timing, mechanical back-up on route and a broom wagon.

Each entrant will receive a limited edition event cap and there will also be a commemorative jersey to purchase at the event. All entries received before July 31 will be put into a draw to win a limited edition jersey and cap signed by Liggett on the day. See the website for competition details.

Entry costs £17 for CTC members, £27 for non-members and £60 for any group of four. Secure your spot at
