The Wally Gimber Trophy

The trophy was awarded to the club for presentation at the annual road race by Wally Gimber, a lifelong club member.

In 1948-9 he was the London centre track, massed start and roller champion and set a national tandem paced half mile record of 48.55 seconds. He emigrated to the US in the 1960s but returned to the UK in 1985 to present the trophy to John Shand at the club’s 50th anniversary dinner. He kept in regular touch with the club until his death in 1993. Past winners of the trophy include Sir Bradley Wiggins; multiple world champion,Olympic gold medalist and Tour de France winner. Tony Gibb has won three times and Simon Cope has won four.
