The Annual Lunch and Prize Presentation is one of the Clubs Major events of the year and should not be missed! It is open to Members, Family and Guests, so there's no reason for not being there! Social Sec Dave Suggars puts a lot into making the event something special and also having someone great to be our 'Guest of Honour' for the event, in the past we have had Tour de France Winner Geriant Thomas; Yellow Jersey Holder Sean Yates; Multi TdF stage winner Barry Hoban; Colin Sturgess (former World Cycling Champion); William Fotheringham (Cycling Author) Reg Barnett and Reg Smith former members of the Clive Stuart Pro Team....the list is endless!
For the 2019 Event our Guest of Honour is one of the UK legends of the sport - Maurice Burton, born in London to an English mother and a Jamaican father, Maurice was the first black British champion in cycling. His first taste of success came when he won the Junior Sprint national title in 1973. He won the amateur scratch title the following year, raced over a 20 km distance although he was booed as he crossed the line. He went on to represent Britain at the 1974 Commonwealth Games, but was not selected for the Olympic squad in 1976. Maurice became frustrated by the racism pervasive in Britain at the time, he moved to Belgium in 1977, basing himself in Ghent. He was described as the first coloured professional cyclist. Burton rode 56 professional Six Day events, and retired from competitive cycling after a serious racing accident at the Buenos Aires Six Day in 1984. In 1987, he took over De Ver Cycles, a thriving bike shop in Streatham, South London. His son Germain Burton is also a racing cyclist who has represented Great Britain on an international level as a junior and rode as a professional for JLT Condor in 2018.
