On Sunday, March 24th, the Dulwich Paragon CC promotes the 54th consecutive running of the early season classic race for the Wally Gimber trophy on the Tenterden circuit in Kent. The field is very strong this year and includes previous winners Steve Lampier (Node 4 Giordana), last year’s winner Matt Jones (Team IG – Sigma Sport) and Andy Lyons, now with bikes who won in 2000.


Steve Lampier winning from a legend in Magnus Backstedt. ‘Lamps’ will be racing for Node4-Giordana in 2013.

The undulating course often sees an early break succeed and the larger teams will be trying to control the race although history suggests that lone riders can win against the odds. Ed Clancy has won already this season transferring his strong winter track form to the road and will be closely marked.

The winner takes with them the prestigious trophy and prize money of £250. Race sponsorship is from Rumm Employment Law, a Tunbridge Wells based employment law practice along with energy drinks company High 5 and Dulwich club kit supplier Giordana.

The first half mile from the HQ is neutralised. Start on the Woodchurch Road (B2067) heading west towards Tenterden. On the approach to Tenterden, continue up the hill where you will turn left at the cross roads (M) with Beacon Oak Road. Proceed south-east along Beacon Oak Road and Appledore Road (B2080).

At Rother Levels, bear left through Reading Street (B2080) and continue east along Tenterden Road to Appledore. At the Appledore junction (M) turn left into The Street, and proceed north into Appledore Heath. Continue north along Woodchurch Road, Bench Hill and Appledore Road towards Woodchurch where turn left onto the B2067 and proceed west to complete the circuit. One lap = 12.4 miles = 19.9 km.

Finish: The finish is on the main course situated on the climb approx 2 miles before Woodchurch. On finishing riders are asked to ride straight to the HQ to avoid congesting the road. The race will be held over 7 laps = 87 miles = 140km

The headquarters will be open from 9am: Woodchurch Community Centre, Lower Road, Woodchurch, Nr. Ashford, Kent, TN26 3SQ
