Roche at The Devil

Cycling legend and Tour de France winner Stephen Roche will compete in The Devil Takes The Hindmost race at Donington Park - the British Formula One Grand Prix - on Sunday, May 31. Cyclists of all levels are being invited to line up with Roche and former England and Crystal Palace footballer Geoff Thomas, who is also riding in the race.

"I'm really looking forward to getting back on the bike and taking part in a competitive race," said Roche, who won the Tour, the World Championship and the Giro d'Italia in 1987. "The Devil Takes The Hindmost is a great opportunity for cyclists to experience a top class race."

The Devil Takes The Hindmost is an elimination circuit race. Riders will set off in a staggered start, based on British Cycling race category or ability. After an hour's riding, the 'Devil' will pick off the back-markers on the start/finish line of every lap.

The idea is for riders to keep up with the main pack to avoid being eliminated. But cyclists will have to keep enough energy in reserve for the sprint on the final lap which comes on the two hour mark.
