A lovely sunny weekend following a dry week meant ideal conditions for this year’s CyB Enduro. The club hosted Saturday’s Kids Enduro with a variety of routes with increasing length and difficulty to suit all abilities.
There were approx. 115 taking up the challenge. Four of the club set off at a hot pace and despite a crash managed to be first back for the second year running. Well done Jamie, Katie, Luke and Tim. Other club riders tackled the challenging routes well done Lowrie, Owen, Zac and everyone who took part.
Sunday bought the usual mass start of around 500 riders all of the club’s riders rode the 30K route
Mike clocked it at 31.07k with 938m ascent and completed the route in 2h 50s he was 75th overall and 3rd male over 60.
Peter who is just back from a serious injury completed the course in 3h 02s and was 100th overall and 1st in the 16/17 year category.
Iain who I believe was on only his 2nd or 3rd ride of the year!!! Finished in 4h 49s.
Elize who completed the ride on a borrowed bike also had a mechanical that required going back to the VC and Steve Beech’s mechanical skills to fix it finished in 5h 09s. (Next year “Remember to bring your own Bike Elize”!!!)
Everyone was pleased with their ride and some have even said they would do it again next year.
Many thanks to all the club members who took part and / or who helped over the 2 days whatever role you played you helped make the week-end a success.
