History of The Five Valleys…

The history of the Five Valleys race route comes from an event which was started as a road race by the Port Talbot Wheelers in 1958 and grew to become one of the most famous races held in Wales, it was the only race in Wales which was given a Star Trophy status – this rating is now called Premier Calendar. The reason for its popularity was because it was such an arduous course taking in some of the most historical climbs in South Wales.
