Both of our 2016 Champions return to defend, Danny Grieves (GS Metro) and Katja Rietdorf (Born to Bike Bridgtown Cycles), Rietdorf also leading Born to Bike to team honours.
This year ECCA promote on behalf of London East District on Sunday on the E2/12 course with battle starting at 5.03am with 95 brave hearts facing the challenge of the half-day title race.
Both defending Champions face some stiff opposition. Adam Duggleby (Vive le Velo) and Jonathan Shubert (Arctic Tacx RT) and Richard Bideau (Peak Forest CC) spring to mind in the men’s event while Jasmijn Muller (Born to Bike), the 2015 Champion, and Alice Lethbridge (Drag2Zero) should provide the biggest threat to Rietdorf. All in all 19 women are listed while the men fill the rest of the 95 competitors places.
The event starts near the Stumps Cross RAB while the finishing circuit is based on Stetchworth RAB-Dunsley Corner-Six Mile Bottom crossroads. Event HQ is at Chesterfords Community Centre, Newmarket Road, Great Chesterford, Saffron Walden CB10 1NS.
