The event returned for its fourth year on Sunday, July 7, with participants competing on a 1.2km-circuit following the long, flat seafront, as well as a sharp ascent and tricky technical descent.

Event co-ordinator Karin Frewin said: "The event ran very well and we are delighted with the response.

"We had a record turnout of cyclists, welcoming more than 200 participants and some major names in cycling. This was the first event to hold a veterans' race as well, which we were really delighted with."

The winner of the FSB Grand Prix - the elite race - was Fred Scheske. George Smith took second and third was Aled Jones.

A family ride took place at 9.30am on the day, which invited families and children to ride along the race circuit.

All of the race results can be viewed on Seaton Cycle Fest's Facebook page.
