Simon Daw dominated Cycle Club Sudbury’s annual awards evening, collecting no less than seven trophies, including the men’s Rider of the Year.
With 50 members and guests in attendance at Newton Green Golf Club, chairman David Fenn congratulated the club on another very successful season, which also saw membership levels reach a new high.
Kirsty White emulated Simon’s domination in the ladies’ section.
Guest of honour, club stalwart John Steed, presented the awards to the various winners which totalled nearly 40, during the evening.
Daw was a recurrent winner in the men’s section, also winning the fastest 25-mile, 50-mile and 100-mile awards; vets and standard BAR awards and club vets championship, as well as deservedly capping off a superb individual season with the club’s Rider of the Year trophy.

Other winners included Peter Faulks, who collected the Audax Cup for nearly 5,000km ridden in Audax events, which included his epic 1,400km ride in the London-Edinburgh-London event, completed with 30 minutes to spare within the in 117-hour time limit.
Super vet Terry Law won the club’s 10-mile handicap trophy; James Rush regained the club’s Hillclimb Championship and David Miller claimed the Boxing Day cup.
