Medway Velo Open Time Trials 2018

Medway Velo are promoting 3 open time trials in 2018.

Sunday 25th March will see Medway Velo taking over the promotion of the classic early season hilly event based on the Kent Downs, an event run very successfully by VC Elan for many years.

The race, which is seen as an indication of early season form climbs both Charing hill and Molash Hill, and includes a number of fast descents which test the technical skills of competitors.

Many velo members have competed in this event in the past, and following a year away from the calendar it is hoped that the event will continue to be seen as a Kentish classic.

Steve Smith is promoting the race on behalf of the velo. Full entry details will be found on the CTT website here.

Medway Velo will be running their open 10 mile time trial on 19 May 2018 on the Q10/24 course on the Isle of Grain.

Start time is 15.00, and entry can be made through the CTT website here.

On Sunday 12th August Medway Velo will be promoting the 50 mile Roy Enfield Memorial Time Trial on the Camber circuit, a race traditionally promoted by the velo and its predecessor clubs.

Roy Enfield, a member of the Medway Wheelers, was part of the wheelers winning team in the prestigious BBAR competition in 1948 and 1949. Ken Joy and Peter Beardsmore were the other two counters, with Beardsmore winning the individual competition in 1948, and Joy, who was champion for four successive years, in 1949.

The present circuit takes in two loops of the road through Camber, and is well known amongst Kent time triallists for being a course which can produce fast times.

Full entry details will be found on the CTT website here. Phil Booth is organising the event on behalf of the velo.
