    Thank You to our 2022 SPONSORS

    GOLD SPONSOR

    Capital Cycles

    2020 saw the introduction of the  Capital Cycles trophy. This is contested across ALL grades in each of the Road Race stages. There will be designated sprints and the first 5 across the line will get the points. 

    The trophy will be awarded to the person with the most points. In the event of a draw, hmm, we will probably come up with a really complicated algorithm that will determine the winner?!
