Entries close Tuesday for the Gary Dighton Memorial 10 mile TT ⏰

Entries for the Gary Dighton 10 Mile TT close on Tuesday 14th June!

The race is set to take place Sunday 26th June on the P415, AKA Ski Slope ⛷. This is the 2nd open TT Poole Wheelers are hosting this year.

The course is renowned in the local area for being one of the quickest 10-mile courses in the South Region and Nationally.

Starting at the Audi Garage in Parkstone, the first 2km are a quick down before hitting a plateau and heading to the Bakers arms roundabout. With there usually being a tailwind for the return to the finish it can lead for some mega quick times 🚴‍♂️💨🚴‍♀️💨

This year we’re running a Road Bike, Tandem and TT bike category, with prizes for each one!

You can enter through these links on the CTT website:

It’ll be incredible to see a huge field of Poole Wheelers representing the club!

Looking forward to seeing many of you on the start line 🙂
