There will be a new trophy up for grabs at the 45th edition of the Eddie Soens Memorial Cycle Race on March 4. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Liverpool solicitors Silverbeck Rymer sponsoring the event, the 'Silverbeck Rymer 10th Anniversary Trophy' will be presented to the rider who turns in the most meritorious performance on the day.
The traditional season opener for Merseyside cycling - and widely regarded as one of the classic events on the British Cycling calendar - this year's race will offer an extra incentive for competitors. Following a review of the national competition structure, British Cycling have decided that 'handicap' events such as the Eddie Soens will now offer license points for the first ten riders to cross the finish line.
Further details of the event and how to enter can be found on the official event website at www.ccs-uk.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk.
