This is a blast, as my write up earlier this year. For sure EGCC can field better talent than “Plodder” B 😉
Entry next year is limited to 800, .
Closed road 28km, “sporting” course. May go through Peterboro town centre this year.
Entry is £50. Pricey but a one-off deal really.
Prize to men’s and women’s winner in 2015 was £1500. Ha ha!
Top 25% in each age category get an invitation to the world amateur champs. Not sure where, this year was Denmark. For some reason they overlooked me. Steve would make it. Ted would probably make it.
Next day is 80m massed start “Grand Fondo” which I’ve already entered. (makes the trip worthwhile). Not oversubscribed in 2015, unlike the TT.
Crono entry method is thus:
1) Pre-Register interest from 06:00 on Sept 12. (wait for the website to crash!)
2) First 800 pre-registered get priority entry window from 14 Nov,
2) General entry opens 16 Nov.
