Thanks to the 25 riders who made it to Driffield to ride the intricate muddy tracks in this Army training area made more interesting by man-made hills and quarries. Andy Conn just managed to beat Alan Hartley by 30 seconds on the A course but it was great to see Andrew Windrum back on his bike for the first time since he broke his collar bone. Charlie SC won the B course, the Van Dams were the only riders on the C course and Dave Offey used his local knowledge to good effect on the Score course. The splits are available on the Halo web page so follow this link
Thanks to the volunteers who made this event happen. Helen Smith for planning the footO as I used 28 of her controls for our event; Neil Harvatt for looking after the SI and Brian Slater for printing the maps; Dave Robertson and Mark Emmerson who looked after the start and finish; and Andy Conn and John Rawden who helped me collect the controls in afterwards.
I think we will repeat this format next year using FootO events on Sunday mornings followed by MBO in the afternoon – with possibly an MBO Score the day before.
