The Essex Trophy Cycle Race
 2016 essextrophycyclerace.co.uk
Brian Moran became involved in cycling as a 14 year old after spending hours looking at cycling magazines, mainly French, and being inspired by the riders and the events that they rode in.  From cobbled roads in Northern France to walls of snow lined hairpin bends in the Alp’s and Dolomites.  After retiring from competition, he wanted to inspire other 14 year olds by creating inspirational races, ones that would make them want to become heroes. Brian used to run this event in the 70/80s and retired from the project because he was spending more time searching for funds than organising.  He was enticed back in the belief that it would be different with the higher profile enjoyed by cycling today. This race is different from any other in that 25 private/difficult sections are included in the 175Km route.  This will provide the challenge, interest and media appeal.
Essex Cycling We are sure that all of Essex is aware and proud of the Tour de France. We are not so sure they are aware of the rich heritage of Essex Cycling.  There was a time when three of the best races in the UK were part of the local scene.  Essex has hosted the National Professional, Amateur and Schoolboy Championships.  The Tour of Britain has been hosted by Southend, Basildon and Chelmsford.  Alas this is all in the past and today there is a huge vacuum.  Essex needs its own events again.
