It was great to see 124 riders at Keldy despite the wet conditions. Dave Evans had planned an excellent course with plenty of route choice and on the forest roads. Just as well, considering the state of the paths and tracks. It’s a great area for mountain biking but the recent ‘drought’ of the last 6 weeks meant that the tracks were as wet as I have ever seen them. Fortunately, the sun came out for the day so everyone seemed to enjoy their rides. It was muddy but at least there was a bike wash next to the finish. Thanks to Jens for another excellent map, the helpers for making everything run smoothly and the volunteers who collected all the controls. Thanks also to the staff at Keldy Cabins who made us welcome. It was an excellent event centre despite the 400m ride to the roadside parking.

Congratulations to the category winners especially Andrew Windrum who scored a remarkable 459 points – 73 more than the next rider. The Parker’s beat the Vesty’s for the first time this year and Dave Lloyd won his first event in M60. Jill Furphy was the first female rider and Karen & Steve used their orienteering experience to beat the other mixed teams.

Apologies to anyone who couldn’t find #42. It was on the wrong side of the track so please let me know and I will adjust your score. I have got 4 items of lost property so please let me know if they are yours – a camera, black and white cycling top, lunch box (and gloves from last month).
There are 2 more events this week so please enter online asap or send me an email. We have only got 5 entries for Wednesday and 25 for next Saturday

Our first Summer evening score event is on Wednesday 16th May at the George and Dragon at Hudswell. It’s a 2 hour MBO around Lower Swaledale
Then the following Saturday (19th) it’s the second NEMBOS event of the season at Grassholme Reservoir. 4 hour NEMBOS league event – same area as last year but all new control sites and even more private estate tracks to ride. A quiet and beautiful area of countryside.

Hope to see you at another event soon.

Steve

PS I am planning the Polaris is in the Yorkshire Dales on Saturday/Sunday 22nd/23rd September and there will be 5 options – 6&5 hours with overnight camp, 5&4 hours without overnight camp, 4 hours on Saturday or 3 hours on Sunday, 40/20k fixed routes on Saturday and 30/15k fixed routes on Sunday. Plenty of choice for all abilities so why not enter? http://www.polarischallenge.com/
