Bostin' Diablo Sportive
1 / 4
The all new Diablo Sportive ('Diablo' in Spanish means Devil!) is our longest and most challenging of our 2019 cycling events with some substantial climbs on some of the routes - however we think that you will find that the end justifies the means - a great day out in wonderful countryside with tremendous views.To go with the new routes we also bring you a new venue at Ormiston Horizon Academy at Tunstall, just North East of Stoke-on-Trent.
