RTTC Trophies

Following upon the announcement that the National Council had decided to establish National Championships and "Best All-Rounder" Competitions, offers of trophies were received both from clubs and individuals. The Council greatly appreciated this ready response by those connected with the sport in the gift of these valuable trophies.

At the transfer of the Council's assets to Cycling Time Trials, a Company limited by guarantee, the Council's Trophies were put into trust on 26th October 2002, in order to protect these assets in the event of the Company going into liquidation. Copies of the deed of trust are available from the Secretary of the Trustees. A brief description of them is given below.
