The event is a qualifier for the British Cycling's National Youth Circuit Series and 2019 National Junior Road Series and will see competitors pedal hard for two full days of racing.
Roads from the Groudle to the old Liverpool Arms pub will be closed for the competition prologue, which takes place on Friday evening at 5.45pm.
Saturday's action gets underway at 9.30am, with all the day's races taking place on the Ellerslie course.
Competitors then head to to the NSC on Sunday, with the first action getting underway at 8.30am.
