Grass track cycle racing has been a feature of Heckington Show for many years and Heckington boasts possibly the oldest grass track cycling event in the country, if not the World.
Heckington Cycling Events 2018
We are delighted to announce that we have secured sponsorship for a new competition for Senior riders at this years Heckington Show Grass Track. North Kesteven District Council are so pleased with their support for the Lincolnshire Go-ride Club Championships that they want to support the Senior riders as well. We already have sponsorship for all five events from local businesses, so we have devised a new competition to be called the 'NKDC Victor Ludorum'. This competition will work like an Omnium, but the prizes are in addition to prizes for individual events NOT instead of.
The Victor Ludorum (Latin for 'winner of the games') will see the top 6 riders in each event scoring points. The Victor will be the rider scoring most points after all five events have finished. Prizes will be £100 for the winner with second and third placed riders receiving £50 and £30 respectively. This will make Heckington easily the richest Grass Meeting in England and brings the total prize fund for seniors to £900 in cash.
Entries close on 30th June – no late entries accepted and no entries on the day. Get your entries in now as we are limited to a maximum of 25.
Each year we hold an inter-club championship for Lincolnshire clubs registered as Go-ride clubs with British Cycling. Teams of 6 riders compete in 7 events, scoring points in each event. Come along again this year and support your local team. There may be a future Chris Hoy or Vicky Pendleton out there - and you could see them first at Heckington
