An all in one update: the event results are here; the league after 3 events is here and the planners comments and control map are below:
Cleveland Hills Planners Comments – Jill and Conrad Ellison
A big thank you for everyone who supported us yesterday – Steve W, John D and the gallant tribe of control collectors – Richard and James M, Christine and Ralph D, Ray M, John R, Simon C, Carl V and Neil R. And to Tim E for putting the map together.
The tracks were bone dry and the early rain on Saturday morning only served to dampen down the dust. The tracks were the driest Jill and I have seen for 20 years. The track through Easby to the west of Captain Cooks, normally a swamp, was totally dry.
Thank you for all of your positive comments. Plenty of smiles at the finish or was it grimacing after the Little Kildale/Baysdale loop ?
Well done to the category winners – particularly to Dave L, first timer to NYMBO, on a great score and 4100ft of climb (proper hills !) and to Angela B-B for a storming score.
Thankfully we were all done and dusted and controls collected before the heavens opened.
See you all at Ingleton, hopefully (for pre- and post- cake and tea).
Jill and Conrad Ellison

Here are Neil’s comments and the control map from the last event, you can also read other comments and post your own here
It was great to see so many people out for this event, both those who wanted to take advantage of the glorious weather as well as those looking to avoid the Royal Wedding !
Fortunately the riding conditions were much drier and faster than those I encountered during my planning rides in March and April.
I felt the course was quite challenging in terms of route choice and this seem to be reflected in the results with a wide variety of route choice evident. I did place quite a few high value controls in the north west corner to encourage riders in that direction and then decide if they had the time or legs to take in West Tansfield and North Tansfield.
Thanks for the many positive comments and feedback – it does make a difference !
Also thanks to all the volunteers at registration/download/car parking/control collecting: Steve, John, Geoff, Alistair, Paul, Tim, Conrad and Gill.
Results from today’s sunny event are here – much better riding conditions than the last time we were here! Full report to follow.
The blank course map for the next event on Saturday 19th May is now available.
