Thanks to Andy & Corinne Parsons for another excellent course on the Hambleton Hills which Andrew Windrum couldn’t quite manage to clear. Must have been saving himself for putting out controls tomorrow. 120 riders enjoyed dry but windy conditions.. Thankfully, the weather had improved over the last fortnight so the tracks were much easier to ride than in February – and definitely better than this time last year when they were covered in 2 feet of snow!
Thanks as ever to Jens for another excellent map and the helpers who made everything run smoothly as well as Sutton Bank Visitor Centre for an excellent event centre. It’s just a pity that the cafe closed so promptly even though I had told them about the event a month ago. Congratulations to the category winners especially Andrew Windrum (M40) who won overall with 506 points, Ben Martin (M21) 448, Tim Evans (M40) 438, Roger de Faye (M60) 427, Andrea & Steve Foster (X50) 394, James Martin (M18) 370, Sheila Pearce (W40) 364, Alan & Ben Botham (Gen) 235. You can follow their splits and check out the map on the NYMBO web site.
I thoroughly enjoyed my ride as ever despite the headwind heading back to Sutton Bank. I was also chuffed to see my grandson competing with his Dad in the Generation class. The future of NYMBO is in safe hands!!
I will work out and post the Handicap results tomorrow. There will be free entry at the next event for the 5 leading riders.
The next NYMBO event is a 4 hour MBO Score event at Barningham & Arkengarthdale on Saturday 12th April. Hope to see you there.
