Had an email from the organiser of this event and the prize list looks very impressive… anyone riding??
The Sleaford Wheelers Nev Crane Memorial 25 mile TT is once again on the horizon. The date is 20th July. Since this popular event first appeared on the Calendar it has been arguably the richest and best supported TT in Lincs DC. It is now its 8th year and it is hoped that another fine entry will happen. Usually the event attracts around 100 riders.
Last year Matt Bottrill lowered his course and event record for the single carriageway C25/35 course to 50:04. With three 49 minute rides in the previous months National 25 in Lincs District, Matt’s time is the 4th quickest ever recorded in the County.
Once again the event offers around £900 in prize awards with £200 being ring fenced just for the ladies.
I hope that I have aroused some interest. The Prospectus and Details of how to enter are as under:
