n Sudbury Motorcycle Club are set to host the Dave Roper Memorial Trail Cross Enduro race to remember their late chairman on Sunday.

The race, which will take place at Tye Farm, Great Cornard (10am), will feature a strong line-up of 80 riders.

This is the fifth year the club have held it, following Dave Roper’s unexpected passing in 2009.

The riders will be divided into three groups, with the first heat a practise before the second heat determines who will go into the main event.

The Dave Roper Trophy will then be decided with the final riders, with a separate race for those that did not qualify.
