Paul Van Katwyk Easter Fesitval

It’s been a fantastic weekend! The weather has been great, and there’s been some superb racing over the three stages, with 5 new course records at yesterday’s time trial and a new 5-lap course record today. Congratulations to Marc Cox, who held on to pip James Roe to the Div 1 crown by just 22 seconds, whilst Jade Packham’s sprint victory over Hannah Brehaut on the final stage wasn’t enough to stop Hannah winning the women’s GC. In Div 2 Phil Touzeau beat Paul Brehaut by a single second after over 3 hours of racing, whilst Alex Ward completed a clean sweep of all three stages in Div 3 racing his first senior road events this weekend.

Final standings can be found here.

Whilst the GC winners take home the kudos, the winner of the Paul Van Katwyk Memorial Trophy was Mike De Robilliard, who was presented the trophy after the final stage by Paul’s son Alex. Racing in a division of his own, every stage was a time trial for Mike but he pushed himself and finished every stage with a big smile on his face, epitomising the spirit of our Easter Festival.

A big thank you to everyone who has helped put this weekend on, including States Works for sweeping the road at Mont Cuet at short notice and to Mint for hosting us this morning, but especially to all those who volunteered to marshal – without you we couldn’t have raced!
