The Russell Thompson memorial trophy is awarded to the rider with the fastest ascent of Bilsmoor.
Russell Thompson (G.S. Metro) dominated the Mountain Time Trial during the 1990s, winning the event a record seven times. He passed away in his sleep at a relatively young age in 2005. The trophy was donated by friends of Russell and was presented for the first time in 2006 by his family.
