WIGHTLINK CYCLE RACING TEAM’S TIME-TRIAL SERIES TO RETURN LATER THIS MONTH

Cycle SoloThe 9-date Wightlink-Wight Mountain cycle time trial series will kick off with 3-person teams taking on the first team time-trial event along Military Road on Sunday 27th March.

The first event in 2022 will be a charity ‘Three-Up’ Team Time-Trial on the Military Road, with all proceeds from this event going to the Mountbatten Hospice.

Organisers are keen for teams from the Island and further afield to enter, but this event is open to all, and everyone is encouraged to get involved.

Organiser Julie Cooper says:

“Categories will be dependent on entries. We’re hoping that riders will get into the spirit of the event and maybe enter as a mixed team or Independent riders can get together with some of their chums to take up the challenge and have a bit of fun!

“The teams of three will ride together with the finish time being taken when the third rider crosses the line, so it’s all about sticking together and helping each other to complete the route.”

Entry is now officially open so anyone wanting to race should email [email protected] with their team’s name and the names of each rider competing.
