Startlist: 60th Eddie Soens Memorial

— Saturday 12th March 9.30am
— 80km / 50 miles

Former winner Jacob Tipper (Ribble Weldtite) headlines the line up of riders for this British classic, a handicap race with many a star rider in the race. Looking through the startlist, many a well known female rider too which is great to see and will be interesting to see if one of them can emulate the success of Julie Hill (Dolan) who won the race in 1991. Two pro teams are there in numbers as well as a World Championship medalist if its the same Nathan Smith who won a medal (Bronze) at the World CX Championships which it would appear to be.

Ribble Weldtite and Saint Piran have strong teams in riders and numbers on the start list whilst there are other strong squads like Cycling Sheffield on their Moda bikes who are on the startlist and many other well known teams. Promises to be a great race again!
