Road Racing Returns to Guernsey this Weekend


With no new cases of Covid-19 for 50 days on Guernsey, local restrictions will be lifted from midnight 19th June allowing contact sport to make a welcome return to the island this weekend. Guernsey Velo Club will be hosting their first road race since 1 March on Sunday (21st) morning on the 7.75 mile L'Erée circuit in the far South West of the island. The start/finish is at Rocquaine Bay and the course immediately heads up the Col du Pleinmont before a false flat along the South coast as far as the airport, then a left turn for a long descent via St Peter's village back down to the coast at L'Erée and down the West coast along Rocque Poisson back to Rocquaine. There are currently 45 signed up, but GVC are expecting further entries on the day, the racing will be run on a divisional basis with Division 1 racing 6 laps, Division 2 5 laps, Division 3 4 laps and a 3 lap novice race. The popular 10-round Open 10 mile Time Trial series also makes a welcome return on Saturday, so it promises to be a busy weekend on the island.
