Please see message from De Laune CC:
I thought I would contact you prior to the 2014 running of the event to advise you of an increased prize fund that is on offer for this years event in celebration of the 125th anniversary of the De Laune CC.
The prize fund on offer will be over £800 (dependant on the number of entries this may be increased) and will be spread across all categories.
At the very minimum the following will be up for grabs (actual prize values yet to be decided) – HOWEVER, FASTEST RIDER OVERALL WILL DEFINITELY WIN £125
First five on actual time – FASTEST WILL WIN £125
First five on standard
First three ladies
Fastest team (three riders in a team) on actual
Fastest team (three riders in a team) on standard
As I have said, the above is a minimum list and it may well be increased depending on the total number of entries received and the numbers received for each category.
However, in celebration of the De Laune’s 125th anniversary, the following will also be awarded:
10 prizes of £12.50 (£125 in total) for each rider closest to ten pre-determined set times (conditions will apply in the event of more than one rider being closest to a time)
PLUS……..in what I and the club think is a first in time-trialling history (??) ANY RIDER FINISHING THE EVENT IE: RECORDING A TIME, WILL BE IN WITH THE CHANCE OF WINNING £125 AND WALKING AWAY WITH THE MONEY ON THE MORNING OF THE EVENT!!!!!! THIS WILL BE AWARDED IRRESPECTIVE OF WHAT TIME HAS BEEN ACHIEVED AND IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE WON ANOTHER PRIZE.
To find out how, enter the event and all will be revealed !!!
I have only contacted those riders who rode the 2013 version so please do make all all your fellow club members aware of this very special, unique and one off chance to win what is quite a large sum of money !!
Entry details as per page 167 of the 2014 CTT handbook – entries close Tuesday 22nd July.
With very best regards and very much looking forward to receiving your entry in due course
