Stuart Carrington (CC Weymouth) writes....
CC Weymouth Open 10 is on 7th April this year. The P451 is a lovely course as most of you will already know. What we lack in ski ramps and dual carriageways we more than make up for with sunshine, fun and cheerful dispositions. We have a £50 first prize, spot prizes with an Easter theme and other prizes depending on the level of entries - we seek to make no profit on this event so the more entries the better prizes. We have also rolled forward all the non-awarded prizes from previous years and now have £199 on offer for breaking the course record. I know most riders are not going to come close to such a time but it might mean we get some top timetriallists coming along. By the way, just in case it makes you keener to enter our Open: For our club events we have always charged other clubs more than we charge CCW riders. This is no longer the case and all club riders will be charged the same this season regardless of what club you belong to. Price will be £2 for our club events as we have decided to absorb the CTT levy increase.
