The Paul Van Katwyk Memorial Easter Cycling Festival

The Paul Van Katwyk Memorial Easter Cycling Festival

As a fitting memorial to Paul Van Katwyk who sadly passed away in February this years Easter Cycling Festival will be dedicated to Paul.

 

This years Easter Festival takes place on the 19th-22nd April with racing on all 4 days. 

 

We will be bringing you road races on the first and third days and TTs on the second and fourth day. Like last year, the GC will be decided on total elapsed time over the 4 events, both road races will also feature sprint laps with bonus seconds being awarded for the top 3 in each division as well as KOM points. 

 

There will be a Prizegiving presentation at Mint on the 22nd April after the race. GVC will have exclusive use of the lounge bar from 9.30am
