Calling all Gillingham wheelers - fast approaching is Glenn Longland's Downton 2 Day Classic, a real highlight and good way to round of the season.

The Saturday morning is a 2,4km Hill climb prologue, half as steep as our Mere Hollow hill climb, the results of which decide the groups for the Road Race.
The afternoon is a 50km road race through the picturesque New Forest. It is handicapped to accomodate all abilities.
Sunday Morning is a Sporting 42km TT through the New Forest.

Healthy Prize money for all stages and the overall.

It would be good to put all those miles and fitness together into a big event like this... and if you can't win it you can always work for your team mates and feel like a real pro..!

PS -  Just to add to Charles' post, I saw Glenn at the weekend and he is very happy to take entries from people who might only wish to ride in the race or the tt but anyone who wants to do just one or the other MUST pre-enter.   James
