Askrigg – race report & provisional results plus Control map

Provisional results here – please get in touch if you have any controls missing or you’re not on the leaderboard.

Thanks to Steve Willis for planning a challenging Wensleydale course, it’s an incredible area to ride.

I hope everyone enjoyed their rides as I thoroughly enjoyed my planning rides. It’s a pity the weather wasn’t better as the tracks would have been easier to ride and the Ford at Helm wouldn’t have been so daunting.

Hopefully there was enough route choice for everyone and not too many riders following similar routes.Thanks to the National Park for looking after the area and Swaledale MRT who would have been there if we’d needed them.

Thanks also to the farmers at Bella or Knight Close, Colby Hall, Litherskew and Old Cams for allowing us to ride on their private tracks. Congratulations on Tom Gibbs for clearing up with 48 seconds to spare after 82k of tough riding. Provisional routes will be posted later but please let me know if there are any errors or omissions.

Thanks to Tim for an excellent map, Dave and John for their help and Yorkshire Dales Brewery for an excellent event centre.Hopefully you’ll be able to ride at our final league event at Austwick on Saturday 1st October.

Cheers, Steve Willis


Thornton Watlass Results

After a dull week it was great to see 56 riders take advantage of the autumn sunshine in Lower Wensleydale. The course took riders though rolling countryside and picturesque villages either side of the River Ure. John Rawden scored an excellent 350 points to win overall, Martin & Max Vesty scored an unbelievable 305 points to win the Generation class and finish 3rd overall, Alice & Neil Hamblin came over from Keswick to win the Mixed category while Karen Blackburn was first lady rider. The Buck Inn at Thornton Watlass made us very welcome and provided excellent bar meals and welcome drinks afterwards. I enjoyed planning the course (and my short ride) so looking forward to the next event at Sicklinghall on December 10th which has been planned by Tim Patterson. Hope to see you there.
