Event Overview

On 8 March 2014 our annual open road races, the Roy Thame Cup & Spring Chicken Road Races will be held on a rolling circuit in the Claydons in Buckinghamshire. With luck this 26th edition of the popular early season event (& for many years the previous incarnation the Circuit of Cublington making it 36 years) will be blessed with fair Spring weather as has been the case on so many previous occasions. Two races take place during the day: the Spring Chicken RR starts at 09:30 and is for 3rd & 4th category riders over 70km (just under 3 laps). The Roy Thame Cup starts at 13:30 and is for Elite, 1st & 2nd cats over a distance of 120km (just under 5 laps). The entry fee is £18 in advance for each event or £20 if you enter on the line or after the closing date. However the last few years the event has had well over 200 entries by the closing date, so EOL will be minimal!

Headquarters are at The Royal Latin School, Buckingham (enter via Chandos Road), MK18 1AX

Bustard soloes to victory in the Roy Thame Cup

Posted 09/03/2014 - Paul Thomson

The Roy Thame Cup and Spring Chicken Road Race
Report: Snowdon Sports

Thomas Bustard (Velosure-Giordana RT) took a solo victory at the inaugural Roy Thame Cup after instigating the winning break in the early moments of the race.

On the rolling circuit around the Claydons in Buckinghamshire the E/1/2 category race consisted of five laps of a 24 kilometre circuit.

From the gun attacks were launched and Bustard, 25 and from Egglescliffe, was one of the key instigators of a ten man break going clear including two Rapha Condor JLT riders and two Velosure-Giordana riders.

They built up an unassailable lead before a late attack on the last lap saw Bustard dangle off the front of the leading group before riding clear for victory.

The chasing group behind had been whittled down to five riders and they sprinted out for second place with Adam Duggleby (Wheelbase Altura) leading them home.

Earlier in the day 20-year-old Callum Grieve (Twenty 3C) took victory in the Spring Chicken RR.
