This Weekend: Beaumont Trophy UCI 1.2

Sunday 18th June | Stamfordham | Start 1.15pm | Distance: 117 miles

After a lull post Tour Series in the local racing calendar for the British based pros, the men’s road season continues in Britain this weekend with the UCI 1.2 Beaumont Trophy at Stamfordham in Northumberland

The party piece  for the Beaumont Trophy is the ‘Ryals’, a stepped climb, short steps which is 1 in 6 on one section. Tough but not a mountain …

The Beaumont Trophy, organised by Peter Harrison, was first run in 1952, the year after the Gosforth Road Club was formed and over the last few decades has gone from a Premier Calendar event to a UCI one and was also the host for the British Championships when Bradley Wiggins (twice a Beaumont winner) showed just what a great roadman he is.

The race is centred around the village of Stamfordham and takes in the fearsome climb of the Ryals but yet the race has been won by sprinters such as Dean Downing, Chris Latham, Russell Downing and Malcolm Elliott showing that whilst a tough circuit, it can end in a sprint from an elite selection.

The race starts at 1.15pm and the riders will race a combination of two circuits. The larger circuit is 22.3miles and includes the climb of the Ryals which will be tackled four times by the riders. The smaller circuit is 13.9 miles and this will be tackled twice.

The race will start with one lap of the smaller circuit before going on to complete four laps of the larger circuit and then finish with a final lap of the small circuit. Total distance is 117 miles (187km).

Bunch kicks are not out of the question as Dean Downing showed for Madison Genesis when he added the race to his CV

The race is also the final one in the UK before the British road championships on the Isle of Man the week after and with the calendar in Britain being devoid of National A road races since the start of the month, some of the teams have been racing and training in Belgium and elsewhere which should make for an interesting Beaumont Trophy as the British teams take on a couple of foreign teams. One of those teams interesting contains a rider called Wiggins …. ;-)

Former winners on the entry list include Evan Oliphant, Chris Latham, Kristian House and Russell Downing but the latter is in Korea. Possible winners are many depending on who starts from the entries listed.

The foreign teams are an unknown but from the British teams entered, the selection expected comes from the usual suspects capable of winning the race. Connor Swift, Jonny McEvoy and Matt Holmes are three from the Madison Genesis team but its a team of winners so any of them could be the chosen one on the day. Former winner Chris Latham who won the first prem of the year in the North East has just ridden a stage race in France where he was third on stage 2 and will be one of the favs.

Metaltek Kuota have a stacked line up and have riders for the breakaway on the climb and also if the race comes down to a sprint with the likes of Fleeman, Holohan and Pym. One Pro on their Boardman Bikes (a valued supporter of VeloUK) have a former winner in their entry in Kristian House down as a substitute and plenty of other options like Hayden Mccormick, second to Dan Fleeman in the last UCI 1.2 race in Britain, the CiCLE Classic. But for a favourite, Tom Stewart, a winner in Poland recently in a UCI stage race, is one to look out for.

The Great Britain team have a team of young riders who have been busy in stage races and they have named Chris Lawless as a subsitute… another favourite if he rides. Raleigh GAC have their sprinter Enrique Sanz who has finished in the top 10 in the majority of all his races since arriving in the country from Spain.

The former World Tour Pro for Movistar has shown he has the sprint to win and would love nothing more than to get his hands in the air in a UCI event again. The team also have Sebastian Mora in great form so their colours should be in the final mix.

Enrique Sanz of Raleigh GAC beating Jonny McEvoy of Madison Genesis – both are among the favourites for Beaumont.

JLT Condor is another team stacked with possible winners including Graham Briggs, climber Steve Lampier and RAS winner James Gullen and if there is one team you won’t be able to miss its Bike Channel-Canyon who will no doubt be the mix from the start and if the race comes to a sprint, have the firepower to do the job with Chris Opie.

As ever in a road race at this level, there will be the usual suspects (see the names above) in the selection as well as the surprises that add that extra buzz to the finales of such races but who ever wins, its sure to be a worthy one.

VeloUK will be there.

Chris Latham beating Sanz in the first Prem of the year – will these two be fighting out the Beaumont Trophy – its a possibility
