    Anyone out for a ride southwest of London this Sunday might like to watch this event.

    It's an 85 mile road race for Elite,1st, 2nd & 3rd cat riders and is one of the few remaining club promoted RR's in the area (other than Surrey League, of course). There is a strong field with 10 Elite riders and 20 first cats. on the start sheet.

    The course is in the area between Chertsey and Chobham. It consists of a 9 mile figure of eight main circuit (seven and a half laps), and a 3 mile finishing circuit (six and a half laps). So this means 7 ascents of Staple Hill - not too hard the first time, but a different proposition with 80 odd miles in your legs, however many gears you've got!

    The Race moves off at 10.30 am, and the finish is expected about 2pm. Don't forget the clocks go forward a hour this weekend.
    The HQ is at Valley End School, Highams Lane. GU24 8TB

    I hope to see some of you Sunday!.
