Reading Time: 2 minutes

What a day! A fantastic and fast event this year!

Thanks must go out to all who helped in organising and running this year, and to the riders who came out and made some blistering times on a day that saw as near perfect conditions as you can get on the ‘Cat’!

It did look like a fast day from the start, and the first few recorded times of the day had already set the bar very high indeed. By rider number 8, Stewart Gregory, coming in with 21:07, I think we all expected some good times.

I don’t think anyone could have expected to have seen 4 event records being smashed today, with a very impressive win from Tejvan Pettinger knocking 14 seconds off the previous record, the team total time going under the hour by the combined excellent times from the top 3 from Buxton CC, and not one, but four ladies going under the previous record, which had stood since 2008! Peter Greenwood cannot go without a mention, by beating his last year’s record as an over 60’s Vet (by 3 minutes!!), and setting the bar very high for future years.

A great event again – so thanks to all the Weavers (and wives) who pitched in as usual to make the event a roaring success.

As I was busy beavering away at the HQ, I didn’t take any shots of the race (haven’t quite mastered the art of being in 2 places at once yet – I’m working on it for next year!).

Here’s Tejvan, getting his prize from Derek, MC FreeStyla on the Karaoke… 🙂

Tejvan smiles at the prize, and smashing the club record...
