Specialized and VoTwo, an events management company, have come up with a new sportive that will take place on the Porsche Experience Centre and towards the Northamptonshire countryside on July 4, 2010.

Richard Hemington of Specialized is proud to announce that registration is now open at He adds, “Sportives are increasingly popular and we wanted to give these riders a great landmark for a new endurance challenge. It all came together when we met up with VoTwo.” Last day of registration will be on May 20, 2010.

Aptly called the Specialized Silverstone Sportive, this will be the first sportive hosted by Specialized and the organizers are all hopeful for its success. The sportive will be perfect as it coincides with one of the most awaited weekends in the cycling world, the start of the Tour de France 2010. VoTwo is banking on all the riders’ enthusiasm for the Tour and for them to see this sportive as a way to “stretch their legs”.

There will be 500 slots available for the event with three distances to cover, 25 miles, 50 miles and 100 miles.
