George Herbert Stancer OBE (1878 – 1962)
The George Herbert Stancer 10 mile Time Trial Championship is named in tribute to a man of many talents. George Herbert Stancer (above centre) or GHS as he was known, in the early years was a nationally renowned performer on both cycle and tricycle; holding both titles & records. Throughout his career he was a leading administrator of the sport, taking over the presidency of the CTC in 1920 at a time when the membership was only about 8,500.
Almost from the day he took over the membership the membership started to grow again, and he had the satisfaction of seeing it rise to over 50,000 before his retirement in 1945.
GHS was also, for several years, editor of cycling magazine and he continued to be active in the sport until his death in 1962. After his death a trust fund was established with the aim of promoting and encouraging participation amongst the young. To this end the National Schools 10 mile Championship was formed and later adopted by the RTTC in 1970.
We hope you enjoy your participation in this year’s GHS Championships.
