‘Hutchy’ the 2010 Gold Cup winner will accompany the current Gold Cup holder during a special Parade Lap when the Ulsterman will say a special thank you to his legions of fans

for all their support during his amazing road racing career which includes a total of 98 wins at the 2.43-mile North Yorkshire venue.

Ryan and Ian will commence the ‘Thank You’ Lap at around 12.30pm on Sunday, which Peter Hillaby, Race organiser says will allow Ryan to say a fond farewell to all the Oliver’s Mount fans and in turn it will give them the opportunity to show their appreciation of a great sportsman who has entered the crowds at ‘The Mount’ for more than a decade.
