Star of the Future: Calum Anderton – The GHS ’10’ Winner’s Move to Belgium


The GHS ‘10’ – as in George Herbert Stancer (OBE, 1878 – 1962), racer, journalist, cycling administrator and the man who lends his name to the British juvenile ten mile championship.

Stancer was a champion of the race against the watch and the event was first organised to honour his memory and encourage youngsters to ride in time trials.

On many occasions the winner has gone on to win the Junior BBAR and then…

But not the 2013 winner, Calum Anderton; he’s packed his black alpaca in the cupboard, left his book of time trial secret course codes on the shelf and headed for Belgium.

It was that champion for British riders heading for the Flat Lands, Nico Sport and Kingsnorth’s Mr. Peter Murphy who suggested we speak to young Mr. Anderton – here’s what he had to say to VeloVeritas.
