National hillclimb champion Dan Fleeman has his second ‘Tour de Nock’ on Sunday January 30, a 60 or 40 mile reliability trial. Last year’s event was shortened due to the snowy weather on the day but it didn’t put off around 70 riders braving the conditions.

This year it is hoped the weather will be kind and the full routes will be able to be ridden as planned. Both routes are based on the Staffordshire training lanes and roads used by Raleigh team rider Fleeman and other local riders. Fleeman’s team mates Liam Holohan and Matt Gee are also expected to take the start line.

The event is supported by Cycle Shack and Peleton Cycles and there is a £5 entry fee. Money raised goes to the chosen charities of the organisation.
