As many of you know by now, entry to the Noble Pursuit entails something of a challenge, a stretching of the mind before that of the legs, as it were. And of course, this year is no different — though we are getting to a point where familiarity with more obscure poetic structure is becoming an asset.
For 2017, your application must list your team name, your 4 riders, a quatrain on the topic of the Noble Pursuit, and finally, a shout out to your favourite road, and why it is so. Not sure what exactly a quatrain is? Your work starts now.
Reading your entries is a highlight of the event for us, both on selection and at the event’s conclusion. So good luck, everyone. Do us proud.
