Barker said: “'I'm pleased to be involved in the HotChillee circuit race.  The event has so much to offer cyclists of all levels.  I’m looking forward to meeting fellow enthusiasts and sharing the passion for the bike!”

Raleigh team manager, Chris Truett said: “The Raleigh riders are relishing the chance to be part of such a great bike festival and the Brand’s Hatch circuit will be a superb theatre for some exciting road racing.”

Sigma Sport riders, Jerone Walters and Wouter Sybrandy, who were 1st and 2nd in last year’s HotChillee Devil Takes the Hindmost race at Donington Park, will ride again this year.  Australian Walters, three times holder of the yellow jersey in the London-Paris Cycle Tour, said of last year’s HotChillee races: “The whole atmosphere at BikeRadar Live was terrific.  It really encouraged people to get into cycling.”

The Endura Racing team will also be sending riders to Brand’s Hatch.  Team manager, Julian Winn said: “We’ve heard some great things about the HotChillee races and the atmosphere last year, so we decided we’d got to be there this year.  We’re hoping to put on a good show and come away with some prizes.   It’ll be a good opportunity for less experienced riders to get some inspiration from the more seasoned riders.”
