Classic News: 63rd Wally Gimber trophy

PLEASE HELP VELOUK SERVE THE SPORT OF CYCLING – THANK YOU (thanks to Sheldon, Anthony, Linda, Matthew, Nicola, Emma for their donations. It all helps keep me on the road).  

The Dulwich Paragon CC promotion is one of the longest-running races on the UK calendar and they are pleased to welcome riders from across the country to this beautiful corner of England. The trophy was awarded to the club for presentation at the annual road race by Wally Gimber, a lifelong club member. Wally was an active Dulwich Paragon member in the 1940s and excelled on the local Herne Hill velodrome.

In 1948-49 he was the London track, massed start and roller champion and set a national tandem paced half mile record of 48.55 seconds. He emigrated to the US in the 1960s but returned to the UK in 1985 to present the trophy to John Shand at the club’s 50th anniversary dinner. He kept in regular touch with the club until his death in 1993. Past winners of the trophy include Sir Bradley Wiggins; multiple world champion, Olympic gold medalist and Tour de France winner. Simon Cope and Rob Hurd have each won four editions.

The race headquarters will be open from 9.00 am: Bells Yew Green Village Hall, Bayham Road, Bells Yew Green, TN3 9BJ

Distance of race: 7 x 20.6km (12.8 miles) laps. 144 km (90 miles) in total
