Organisers of the Dartmoor Classic cycle marathon have declared this year's 14th edition on after a year out because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Serious racers are also signing up for the South West's first time-trial of 2021 in record numbers.
The 4,000-rider Classic - the UK's biggest non-for-profit 'sportive' - will go ahead on Sunday, June 20, after the host Mid-Devon CC was buoyed by recent Government lockdown easing plans.
The Newton Abbot-based event had to be postponed last year, along with many other summer events.
One of them was the Mid-Devon's annual Good Friday Sporting TT, 23 miles over the Bovey and Teign valleys, on April 2.
But entries are heading towards the 100-mark ahead of the March 23 deadline.
Virus precautions will still prevent post-race presentations, riders won't receive their usual 'push-off' (social distancing) and race numbers will be disposable.
