Grassington Rd/Burnsall 7.00PM   5th July 2017

 

 

I was absent for the night of the 23 miler from Grassington Road roundabout and so am unable to comment on conditions for the night.  I did hear though, that it was rather tough going from the start to Bolton Abbey.

Despite this, there were some impressive times – and though Steve Ayres, last year’s winner, was 40 seconds down on his time for last year it was completed in a splendid 56:19.  Well done Steve.

In second place, another Bronte Wheelers rider, Darren Caines came in at 1:00:47 and in third place from Pendle Forest CC, was Russell Marsden in a time of 1:02:02.  Ben Cook came in at 4th place which meant that Bronte had 3 riders in the top 4 places – well done Bronte.

It’s a hilly course as we know and so the standard time allowed for the vets is not particularly generous –  standards  are assessed on flatter courses.  However, the standard times are added here for comparisons for those riders who are included in this category. Darren took first place in the vets with Russell and Ben in second and third place.
