Change of date and venue for Sanyo Cup
The Sanyo Cup 2-up Time Trial will now take place on Saturday, 17th September to avoid a clash of dates with the penultimate road race of the season on 18th September. The time trial will take place on the Summerhill-Kilcock road, with the sign-on and start/finish at Hatton’s hotel link below, roughly halfway between Kilcock and Summerhill. The course runs between the roundabouts at Kilcock and Summerhill and is approximately 17.6 km long. Sign-on will be open from 9 am, with the first riders off at 9.30 am.
The Sanyo Cup has been a constant feature on the IVCA racing calendar, with some of the biggest names in Irish cycling history etched on the trophy. The time trial operates on an “estimated time” basis, with each team forecasting their time in advance. The cup is awarded to the team which completes the course closest to their estimated time. Prizes will also be awarded to the fastest team.
This year, IVCA members can invite a guest rider over 18 years of age to compete on their team. If the guest rider is not already covered by Cycling Ireland insurance, they can take out Single Event insurance (One Day Licence) for a cost of €10. This insurance can be purchased at sign-on.
We hope to see a good turn-out for the event. Normal road bikes are welcome.
