The UCI recognised MagnifiCat is in its second year to the Wiggle Super Series but the event itself is steeped with pedigree and was one of the first UK Sportives. In its 8 year history, the Wiggle MagnifiCat has established itself as a truly classic challenge bringing together the rolling Hampshire countryside, classic climbs and the South Downs into a formidable challenge.
The longest route 'The MagnifiCat' is 200km long and there are a total of nine major hills with around 6,500ft of climbing.
Modelled on UCI European Golden Bike Events there are four route options to choose from allowing each rider to choose their Challenge. The 125 mile (200km) Epic, 82 mile Standard, 44 mile Short.
The enhanced 2014 route will start from the exceptional Newbury Racecourse which has superb facilities and on site car parking, easily accessible by road, just an hour’s drive from London, Birmingham, South Coast and Bristol.
With 2000+ riders expected in 2014, the Wiggle MagnifiCat is one of largest and most renowned Sportives in the UK.
