First of all I omitted to mention in the previous blog entry that Brians 1.56.45 in last Sundays 50 mile TT is in fact a new British record for his age group knocking 1min 27secs off the previous record set in 2007 by Derek Hodgins. So far this season he's broken the British age group records for 10, 25 and 50 miles - AWESOME!
Brians apprentice, Padiham Chris, continued his fine vein of form yesterday evening in the Cragg Vale Hill Climb where he recorded a time of 16min 53secs to claim 6th place overall from a good field of 60 odd entries, a personal best up the Cragg for Chris . I guess we've all ridden up the longest continuous climb in the country several times so we understand how good 16 minutes is, great ride Chris, keep it up.
Due to marshaling duties at Grimpy's road race on Sunday Simon and I have planned to get a few steady miles in on Saturday meeting in Brighouse (o/s Websters at bottom of Hudds Rd) at 7am. We plan to do a Humber Bridge circuit having breakfast at Selby and returning through Thorne and West Bretton (about 150m). Anyone who fancies joining us get to Brighouse for 7am.
Sunday July 17th - There's a lot on this day with the Bronte Sportive and the Yorkshire Mixture Audax from Otley both being events Condors have been happy to support but I've been tempted away from the road and entered the Moors Marathon 100k MTB ride, Its a great big circuit around the North York Moors from just north of Pickering. Mel and I rode it some years ago and I'm looking forward to having another go. Entries can be made here http://www.bmbo.org.uk/calendar/details.php?event_id=800
