INTERNATIONAL TRICYCLE EVENTS

These began as the result of an initiative by Wayne Baker who had been holidaying for several years in St. Marsault, a small village in the region of Poitou-Charantes, France and on several occasions had taken his tricycle with him. The villagers and some English ex-pats who were living in the village became increasingly intrigued by the tricycle and Wayne’s accounts of tricycle racing in England.

The first event, a time-trial conceived as an “International Tricycle Challenge” in conjunction with the fete at St. Marsault, was held in 1998 and was organised by Wayne Baker and Roger Clemerson with the cooperation of the Comite des Fetes de St. Marsault and the support of the Tricycle Association. The following years saw the event become established in St. Marsault and become recognised as an unofficial World Championship for Tricycles. As a result of the contacts made at St Marsault Tricycle World Championships have since been held in St Marsault, Belgium and England, but the event still returns to St. Marsault every second year. The event has been run as a time trial every year except in 2006 when it was run as a two-stage massed start and time trial.
The Marjorie Heighway Trophy for the first tandem tricycle was first awarded in 2002 in her memory after she was tragically killed in a road accident. It was subscribed to by the villagers of St Marsault and members of the Tricycle Association.
Below is a record of these events, together with details of one-off event run as a criterium in Hyde Park, London to celebrate the visit of the Tour de France in 2007.
