This Sunday: National Trophy Round 1

Southampton Sports Centre, Thornhill Road, Southampton, Hampshire, SO16 7AY


Ian Field of Hargroves Cycles-Ridley) one of the star names

This Sunday sees the start of the National Cyclo-Cross Trophy for 2015/16 in Southampton and what an event it promises to be. In the Elite Men’s race, the clash between one of the top road stars in Graham Briggs (JLT Condor), the cyclo-cross British Champion Ian Field (Hargroves Cycles-Ridley) and many of the established off road stars such as Paul Oldham (Hope Factory) makes that race such a mouth watering prospect.

Those are just three of the ‘names’ in that event which will also see a visitor or two from Belgium and whilst a dry week is likely to make the course faster and better for the likes of Graham Briggs, the weather forecast showing signs of rain on Saturday evening could change everything for Sunday’s race.


Road star with a lot of ‘cross wins to his name already, Graham Briggs (JLT Condor) is  one of the favourites in the Men’s race.

In the Women’s event, the startsheet has most of the usual stars there including Amira Mellor (Paul Milnes), Annie Simpson (Hope Factory), Adele Carter (Hope Factory), Merce Pacios Pujadó (Beeline Cycles) and so many more including the legend that is Isla Rowntree (IslaBikes).

Racing starts at 10.15 with the Veterans followed by the Youth races and Junior Men before the Women and Elite men get their series underway later in the afternoon. After round 1 in Southampton, the series heads to Derby before round 3 in Durham, round 4 in Ipswich, round 5 in Bradford and then the final round in Milton Keynes in January 2016.


Amira Mellor (Paul Milnes Cycles) one of many favourites for the Women’s race.
