...The 57th edition of Tyneside Vagabonds Mountain Time Trial in Northumberland sees a rematch between last year's top two riders - 2011 MTT winner and National 24 Hour record holder Andrew Wilkinson (Port Sunlight Wheelers) returns to defend his title against Rapha Condor Sharp professional Richard Handley who finished just 22 seconds behind in second. Also challenging for the top spot will be the Blumilk.com riders, former winner John Tuckett and man-in-form Jon Sturman who recently defeated Andrew Wilkinson in the Teesdale MTT.
Other former winners of the event are also riding this year. With a field of 82 riders this year, the race is once again one of the biggest events in the North East time trial calendar. Due to roadworks in Rothbury, the course has been amended to start and finish just outside the town, but retains the classic route over a shortened 45 mile course through the Northumberland hills. The racing in various age and ability categories will be hotly contested.
(Should be a good one to catch).
Also A reminder about a tasty event next month: The N&DCA - Stay Classy / Well Handled RT 10 mile time trial is on soon - its promoted for and on behalf of Cycling Time Trials under their rules and regulations. The event will count towards the 2012 N&DCA BAR (Best All Rounder Competition). This event will be run on the 15th June at 7pm on the M101 course, and headquarters is the Bebside working men's club.
(We're not in the N&DCA (yet) but if you think we should, let us know..and soon)
