Ian Vaughan Memorial Trophy

The Ian Vaughan memorial trophy is awarded to the fastest junior in the Mountain Time Trial.

Ian Vaughan

Ian Vaughan was a young local rider, a member of Barnesbury C.C, aged just 25.  In a tragic accident during the Mountain Time Trial in 1991, Ian was hit head-on by one of two cars supposedly racing each other.  This happened on the long straight just outside the Waggon Inn between Ponteland and Belsay, the event starting and finishing in Ponteland that year.
