Hampsthwaite report & results

Here is Simon’s report for last Saturday’s Hampsthwaite event – thanks to Simon Coiley for organising this one. A little later in posting thank we would usually like, sorry about that!

Now updated with control map (and Galphay also added)

MapRun results are here – do get in touch with any corrections

It was great to see over 50 riders on a chilly but thankfully mainly dry morning at Hampsthwaite Memorial Hall. Even better were the many smiling faces on their return. I do believe some who ventured higher up did get to enjoy some sleet though!
Thank you for the many positive comments at the finish.

I had really enjoyed my pIanning rides on steadily drying bridleways. I still tried to place plenty of points on the local network of roads, just in case the weather didn’t behave, whilst also giving plenty of route options further afield.

Looking at the maprun tracks, there was a good spread of routes in both main
directions from the village. I’m sure you all discovered the deceptive amount of
climbing whichever direction you chose! On this occasion it was Nuno Cerqueira that
triumphed in his ding dong battle with Martin Edwards for overall winter honours with
both now on two victories. Nuno chose a clockwise route around the whole perimeter
of the map only leaving the three controls along the river Nidd near Birstwith and
control 13 at Hartwith.

  • Congratulations to all the category winners:
  • M – Nuno Cerqueira – 471 points
  • W – Claire Riley – 326
  • MV60 – Steve Collins – 378
  •  Youth – Mieszko Lichtarowisz & James Harrison – 302
  • Gen – Jeffrey & Laura Barber – 290
  • Mix – Sally Buckworth & Saul Muldoon – 289

Thanks to Rebecca and the team at the Joiners Arms for the warm welcome and
food afterwards.

Massive thanks to Tim Evans for his help and patience with the mapping and also
manning registration. Big thanks also to Dave Robertson for sorting the entries, food
orders and web postings. We should hopefully have the Bmbo entry system back up
and running for the next event.

    Pleased to see the 2023 summer league events appearing on the BMBO calendar. The details say using SportIdent. Is that accurate or will they be MapRun? Thanks. Karen
