TBT: Ivan Lintin’s Golden 2014 Gold Cup Meeting

Back in 2014 the 64th Scarborough Gold Cup meeting at Oliver’s Mount, would prove a quite golden one for Ivan Lintin.

Piloting the Taylor Lindsay Racing Honda’s, he wrapped up Darran Lindsay Trophy, David Jefferies Cup and Steve Henshaw International Gold Cup victories.

He was also in dominant form in the Lee Pullan Trophy races, winning both races in comprehensive fashion, on the Tigcraft machine.

Alongside Ivan, additional elite roads stars in action at the Gold Cup in 2014, included John McGuinness and Bruce Anstey, competing under the Valvoline Racing by Padgetts Motorcycles banner, plus East Coast Racing’s Lee Johnston, James Cowton and Jamie Hamilton.

The feature race, the Steve Henshaw International Gold Cup, provided Ivan Lintin at the time, with a third international road race victory.

It’s a meeting that will be remembered mainly in my opinion, as an event which marked Ivan Lintin’s final step up the ladder from been a rising roads star, to becoming a world class roads exponent.
