A quieter weekend for Chris with only one race on Saturday and one on Sunday, he must have been at a bit of a loose end - or was he busy spending his prize money ?
On Saturday he rode the Rossendale Road Club's climb up Woodplumpton Road to Crown Point. The event was won by the in-form David Huck from Lakes RC with a time of 2min 37secs with Chris taking 7th place in 3.10
On Sunday he was even nearer home at West Pennine RC's climb up Blackstone Edge just failing to defend his 2015 win but taking a good 2nd place.
This coming Saturday he's back to his two a day schedule with the Star Wheelers Jackson Bridge climb in the morning and Holme Moss in the afternoon. I'm meeting Simon and Adam in Brighouse at 8.30am; we're going to have a potter out to the Oil Can Cafe prior to giving Chris a shout on the Jackson Bridge climb, all welcome to join us. As far as I know he's just down for one climb on Sunday, the classic Rake at Ramsbottom where he's got some top quality competition from a full field of 120 riders.
Also on Sunday is the local Autumn Classic, the Season of Mists, a hilly 105k Audax from Mytholmroyd Community Centre, 9am or for those who love the mud, the Calderdale Mountain Bike Marathon from Sowerby Tennis & Bowling Club.
