With the demise of the Archer & Tour of Wessex, the 'Chas' is the only premier calender event in the South. Plans are advanced to have max. 80 riders on a tough course based at Long Crendon, north of Thame. The course is Long Crendon/Chearsley/Ashendon/Dorton/Chilton/Long Crendon, 11 miles of unrelenting roads with hill primes at Chearsley & Dorton, total mileage 100.

HQ will be Lord William's School, Thame nr. the A329/416 junction r/b. Starting at 10.30am, the race will finish outside Ashford School, Dorton at approx. 3.00pm. Sponsorship is being provided by Plowman Craven, Phil Corley Cycles and AJM Fire Risk Assessment Services and it's being filmed by Cyclevox for transmission on Eurosport at a future date. Whilst we have the full support of the NEG (National Escort Group), we need marshalls on all corners and junctions which total about 20+ persons and I am contacting all clubs in the Region for help. Food and drink will be provided free at the HQ for all helpers together with a flourescent jacket and flag so is any of your/team club can help, please get in touch asap.

My thanks as always for any assistance which can be made available.
Best regards

Mike Clark
