Late last year we were approached by Lancaster solicitors Clarkson Hirst, offering sponsorship!

They agreed to fund some prizes, targeting particularly younger competitors and have agreed we should have two prize periods - basically the first and second halves of the season. In June well award the prizes for the first three months as shown below:

JUNE

10 miles

6 miles

2 miles

Fastest

£25

£25

£25

Second fastest

£15

£15

£15

Best Gauged*

£20

£20

£20

Only juniors are eligible for prizes at the shorter distances, and thats two thirds of them!

The Prize for Best Gauged ride is a PURE time trialling prize, but not one that could be awarded on a traditional out-and-back coursethe steadiest, most consistent set of splits wins. Its a fair bit of data crunching, but at least the timing system generates the data.

The prizes for the second half of the season are similar, with the addition of prizes for those who improve most over the season.

SEPTEMBER

10 miles

6 miles

2 miles

Finally, theres a one-off prize of £150 for the first sub-20 minute ride - if anyone manages it!

Clarkson Hirst have sponsored Lancaster and Morecambe Hockey Club for several years. Hockey and cycling are both personal interests of the Director, though in the case of cycling he is also aware of the risks of using a bike - especially for youngsters.

Though not much of Clarkson Hirsts business is directly related to cycling, they have dealt with many personal injury cases including cycle accidents. Of course, they hope you will not need to make use of their services for this but in the unfortunate event of a cycling accident occurring they can assist on a no win no fee basis. If you do need that kind of help - or if youre thinking of taking local, professional advice on any of the usual range of legal matters - clicking on their logo at the bottom of our homepage will take you to their website.
