Dulwich Paragon’s flagship National B race, the Wally Gimber Trophy, returns for 2024 on Sunday 17 March. Having been held every year bar 2020 since 1960, it’s one of the longest-running road races in the United Kingdom, offering the winner a chance to share trophy space with the likes of Bradley Wiggins and Alex Richardson.

This year we’ve relocated the race a little closer to home. Bletchingley is a tried, tested (and occasionally hated) course with some short steep kickers leading to the finish line (and helpfully is usually easily accessible by train from London). Expect punchy, selective racing.

Entry via British Cycling is here. Places are open to Elite and 1st-3rd Cat riders, with a maximum of 6 per team/club.
