The Gary Dighton 10 mile TT – 27th June 2021

The Gary Dighton 10 mile TT

Today marks Gary’s 53rd birthday and, with June looming, we felt it was a perfect day to tell you all about the 10 mile TT, held in Gary’s memory!
Scheduled for Sunday 27th June, this TT is a particularly popular and a well-attended event with so many riders, friends and family from the local community having fond memories of Gary to share.
Last year we had in excess of 100 riders take to the road to mark the event with some blistering times that Gary would have been proud of.
Stick the date in the diary – its the fastest course in the area and will be a great event for anyone to attend – if you’re a season-pro or new to time trials entirely – we look forward to seeing you there!
Entries for this event must be made via the CTT website
