5 July 2019: The Southern Counties CU regretfully announce the cancellation of the 2019 edition of Rod's 100.
This is due to planned roadworks on the course and, although the advance notification appears to list the day of the event as "no planned roadworks
", further clarification from the contractor has indicated that the course is unlikely to be roadwork free on the day of the event. It was felt that by cancelling now - rather than waiting until the day of the event - riders will have the maximum opportunity to enter an alternative 100 should they wish.
Locally the alternative is the East Sussex CA 100 to be held on 11 August 2019: https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/race-details/19211
