The BMC Youth Open Lead competition will take place at The Big Depot in Leeds on Saturday 6 April 2019 (Please note: this is a change from the originally announced venue due to council work that may effect roads at that time). Competitors will pit their strength against two tricky qualification routes to try and claim a place in the final. Will you be signing up?
The event is suitable for the following categories:
Junior (born in 2001- 2000)
Youth A (born in 2003-2002)

The qualifying round takes place on two qualifying routes per category. Each route must be climbed within six minutes.
