Hit the North 12 Feb 2011

Another fantasticly well organised event by the HtN team near Whitefield north Manchester went off in sunshine with 5 WVCC riders – if you look carefully you can see us all lined up for the start above. Thanks to John Climber for all the pics (I’ll be donating to mountain rescue as requested – probably when up in the Lakes next for the Grizedale Duathlon in 4 weeks which some of us have entered). The race was won by Ian Taylor (3rd in the 3 Peaks! – that’ll be behind Nick Craig and Rob Jebb then) with first vet Dave Haygarth (regular in our cyclo cross event) 2nd overall.

Matthew was first club rider with a very credible 33rd overall – clearly enjoying the mud! And that is mud on his helmet from a face-plant during the race.

First lady vet was our own Eleanor Underhill who was also enjoying the race judging by this picture and picked up a decent prize for her efforts – well done El our only prize winner.

Kev Underhill riding despite his bad back finished 50th which was good going out of 200 starters

Kev Campbell was 84th, just 3 places behing Matthew’s brother Ed and ahead of El
And this was me gritting my teeth as Matthew disappeared into the distance – that wasn’t my plan! But then I’m another year older and he’s another year more experienced – 42nd overall wasn’t too bad. A great event again – thanks to the guys and ladies who organised and marshalled – I’m sure we’ll be back for the next one.

Club runs are back in the calendar for our members and new riders who are looking to join.
