Final Fling – and last Guardian Cup counter

The last Club 10 of the year, and a chance to have a last go at a club event in 2016.

Unusually this year, due to an earlier cancellation of Guardian Cup Round 5 due to road works, this will also count as a Guardian Cup round!

For new riders, just come along and have a go. It’s all about you and the clock, and measuring your own performance. It’s therefore open to all, no matter what you ability or level of fitness.

Meet in Shakerley Mere Car Park in Northwich Road (B5082) at 18:30. First rider off at 19:00.

Tom Simpson " A bird on the wire " by Andy McGrath.

An excellent insight into pro racing in the 60s . Full of anecdotes not all complimentary, and great photos of Simpson in a bye gone era.

Whether you love him for his humour , sheer aggressive and impulsive racing style, his Britishness in marketing himself in order to gain publicity for his sponsors and money for himself or his class and incredible guts .

OR

hate him for being a drugs cheat in the days when doping controls were in their infancy , bringing the sport into disrepute on a massive scale with his death on that fateful day , 13th stage , 13/07/67 when he collapsed and died on Mont Ventoux .

There is no denying he was a trail blazer along with a handful of others who ventured to the continent about 60 years ago in search of glory .To my generation they were our source of inspiration and our guiding lights.

It was thanks to those pioneers that have ultimately led to British riders in a British team , winning the Tour de France on 4 out of the last 5 years .

Something that Simpson died trying to achieve !
