Since the success of British riders in the Tour de France and Team GB cyclists in the London Olympics, the legacy has been one of continual growth for the sport on both a participatory and spectacle level. Promoter Brian Moran, is seeking to restore the Essex Trophy – an elite level men’s cycling event that ran from 1973 – 1983 and was one of the top ten races in the UK. Scheduled for Sunday 9th April 2018, the Chelmsford-based race would traverse the county taking in private farm tracks and specially sought out bad roads to provide the riders challenge, both in terms of technicality and endurance.  It will also provide spectator and media interest. It is aimed at the very best 125 UK riders. A truly moving spectacle designed to interest local spectators and a wider audience through news and media coverage.  A special event which includes a mass participation ride and plans to grow year on year with a women’s and junior version. The event is sponsor-dependent and for logistical reasons, sponsorship funding needs to be secured, but not donated, by June 30 2017.
