Back For 2014
The Rob Jefferies Memorial Meet is back for 2014, with a date set for Sunday 20th July.
After a very successful first year, the race returns with a new tier of events for elite women riders. Rob was a champion of women's cycling and so it was thought appropriate with the current explosion in the women's race scene in Britain to include them in a stand alone category.
As with last year, there is still the elite men's series of races for E/1/2/3/4s, races for 'club' riders of 3/4th category, races for youth A & B riders as well as the new category for 1/2/3 Women. Each category will get to ride a 20 lap warm up, a six lap dash, a devil-take-the-hindmost and a final distance points race. This will be the Rob Jefferies Mini Memorial for youths, the Eddie Beck Memorial for club riders and the 100 lap Rob Jefferies Memorial for the elite men, counting for points in the national hard track endurance league and coming with it's rather lovely fossilised trophy.
Once again, proceeds from the event will be going towards the charity RoadPeace, helping victims of road traffic accidents with legal and emotional support (more details www.roadpeace.org/)
