Guy Martin to race at Scarborough
Six time International Oliver’s Mount Gold Cup Cup winner, Guy Martin is to race his Hydrex Honda at this weekend’s Cock o’the North Road Races to attempt to regain his title he has previously won on three occasions in the past, the last time two years ago in 2007.
The likeable Kirmington, Lincolnshire lad is returning from his second love of mountain biking in France to compete at the prestigious north Yorkshire event prior to travelling over to the Isle of Man, for next week’s Southern ‘100’ International Road Races.
However, he will be up against Ian Lougher who has no less than 117 race wins on the Scarborough course and is the current holder of the ‘Cock o’the North’ Trophy.
The eighteen-race, two-day programme has attracted the best of the road race fraternity from around the British Isles with the action getting underway at 09.00am on Saturday and 09.30am on Sunday, 11th & 12th July.
