Roy van Panhuys was the immediate past President of Ramblers Cycling Club, was the President for almost a decade and a leading figure in the development of the Club. He was also an organiser of the Tour of the Bay and had a leading role in several other cycling initiatives in the Bay over the last decade. He had a passion for cycling, was a fine cyclist and a keen competitor.
Roy was taken from us in January 2012 and is missed by everyone in Ramblers.
To commemorate Roy's love of the discipline of time trialling, an Individual Time Trial is to be held each year in the Summer Series. This time trial will be named the Roy van Panhuys Time Trial and is held at this time of the year to honour Roy's passing..
The time trial will be based on a handicap system which measures each riders performance on the day against an adjudged time that rider should be able to achieve. This means that every rider will have a chance to win a prize, not just the fastest riders.
Junior gear restrictions:
U15: maximum 6.00m rollout, wheels must have a minimum of 16 spokes rims must not be made of composite materials, standard handlebars - clip on aero bars NOT permitted.
U17: maximum 7.00m rollout, wheels must have a minimum of 16 spokes rims must not be made of composite materials, standard handlebars - clip on aero bars ARE permitted.
U19: maximum 7.93m rollout.
Roy's family and friends have kindly donated prize money for this event.
First, second and third place getters on handicap will be awarded a monetary prize as well as certificates.
Only current financial members of Ramblers are eligible for prize money and certificates.
