Reminder: Open TT on ski slope on 18th June, sign up closes 6th June

This is a reminder for everyone to sign up to the Poole Wheelers Gary Dighton Memorial Open Time Trial on possibly the fastest course in Dorset on Sunday 18th June.

This is a 10 mile open time trial on the super fast P415/10 Ski Slope / Ryvita factory course, starting at 07:00 (7:00am). This is an Open event and you therefore must sign up via the CTT website in advance: individual entries, tandem entries. Deadline for signing on is Tuesday 6th June! 

Please do not try to sign on in comments below on this one, since it is an Open event we can only take official CTT entries.

Head Quarter is at Cuddles Day Nursery, Canford Heath. All tea equipment supplied.

Gary Dighton (1968-2015) was a prolific cyclist and highly successful on the British time trial scene during the 1990s. In 1990 he won the British Best All-Rounder with an average speed of 26.216mph, he broke the competition record for the 25-mile time trial in 1991 with a time of 48.07, and rode in the team time trial at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992. He was a close friend of people in the club and joined Poole Wheelers in 2010 after a 12-year retirement.

We are always looking for volunteers to help marshal our events. If you are able to help out with this event, please let us know in the comments below or email Richard Davidson or Ros Spencer.

  1. Hi. Can I sign up and get an early time please? Ready for a Father’s Day run out before I get all my presents 😄

  2. Hi Ros, my boy (Tom) is off to France on a school trip on Sunday – I’d like to see him before he goes. Assuming I make the list (via CTT) could I get a late (ish) start if possible. Many thanks, Mike
