In 1999 The Brighton Mitre CC organized a 24 Hour time trial. The result saw Dave Shepherd of the Rother Valley CC win with a distance of 483 miles. This was the last time that the all day event was run on roads in the south east of England until 2011.
In 2011 Andy Wilkinson's mileage of 541 miles set a new record for the distance. The four main award winners where Andy Wilkinson pictured right (541 miles) John Warnock (517 miles) David Shepherd (483 miles), and Bronwen Ewing as first Lady (406 miles). It has been decided to hold the event again in 2014. Once again Esther will be organising the event with support from many of the 2011 Team.
The CTT and the VTTA have confirmed that this event will be both National Championhsips for 2014.
This year the course will be completely in East Sussex, starting opposite Arlington reservoir and comprising three circuits linked by stretches of the A22.
Obviously we will need many helpers, and volunteers have been coming forward since this event was mooted. We will need more though and hope that you and your club mates will be able to assist for a few hours whilst cheering on your own club riders throughout the event.
Among the volunteers Robin Johnson is committed to putting out the signs and Max Norrell will be on call for any riders who have mechanical trouble. Jackie MacNay has promised to bring her massage table for after the event treatment and Gary Booth will supervise the signing-on. A form that can be downloaded here has a list of helpers that we will need. If you are able to come out will you be kind enough to mark the times you will be available and the sort of job you are able to do.
