The Hope Gibbons Shield. Started in the early 1930's. We finally managed to get our names on it this year in a slightly controversial manner. We were beaten by one team, but they werent all paid up members of the Centre, so didn't qualify. A real bugger cos the one guy that wasnt a member got dropped almost immediatley and it was up to the other 3 to lap it out for the 38kms anyway! They did a 54.01 to our 55. Like most teams, we dropped one rider as well.
