New prizes have also been introduced for this year’s event. There are Team prizes of £15(1st) £10 ( 2nd) £5 (3rd ) – prizes per rider in a team of three. Plus, new course record prizes courtesy of sponsors, Robins Row Insurance, who are offering £75 to the riders who set the new men’s or women’s course records. These currently stand at 43.4secs by Tom Stephenson (Colchester Rovers C.C.) and 1.00.6 (XRT Elmy Cycles) by Sandra Mackay, respectively.

On top of these prizes the organizers provide closed & swept roads to compete on. Following the unprecedented success of last year’s event, they have also made available ample additional car parking in the meadow at the foot of Watson’s Hill- just yards from the start. Finally, mention should be made of the atmosphere of this event. Typically, crowds of people gather on the hill to cheer on the riders. This event offers a great opportunity for friends, family and club mates to watch and lend their support.
