    Entries for the Sleepwell Hotels sponsored Isle of Man International Youth & Junior Tour topped the 100 mark this week. It’s the first time entries have hit the ton since the event was established only two years ago.

    Some of the star riders confirmed so far include Jetse Bol, Pim Ligthart and Mitchell Huenders from the Netherlands who will race for Sleepwell Hotels, National Junior Ladies Champion Louise Maha of the Sutton CC, regular Revolution Future Stars riders Ross Yates and Tom Skubala and National Youth Circuit Race Champion Chris Worrall of the Manx Road Club. Add in most of the Regional British Cycling Talent Teams, a Welsh National Squad along with some strong teams from Team Scottish Provident Isle of Man, the Tour looks set to be a real classic event.
