This years event was the 25th occasion since dedicating the race to the late Ian Crossley. Ian’s father Jim, made the journey from his home in Spain to ride, and finished with a creditable time of 1 hour 14minutes and 44 seconds.
The weather was thankfully dry, but with a cold, blustery wind to trouble the competitors, mainly on the return leg from Meltham.

The result was very close, with less than a minute covering the first three riders., victory going to David Kinloch of Club Ilkley CC in a time of 52minutes and 4 seconds. There were, as sometimes happens in these events, a few ‘hard luck’ stories. Sam Clarke, Sett Valley Cycles/Buxton CC was the winner two years ago, and looking likely for a repeat win, rode the last mile with a flat front tyre, after hitting a pot-hole and still managed to finish in fourth place. Paul Stitt, Glossop Kinder Velo, suffered three punctures on the start line before abandoning his attempt.

Fastest lady was Emma Osenton, Kinesis Morvelo Project ( 59mins.06secs ) and the team award went to Manchester Wheelers. Other riders from the promoting Oldham Century Road Club were, Stuart Green in seventh place ( 56mins.51secs ), Rob Wilkinson was fourteenth (58mins.36secs) and Ian Kenworthy, thirtieth (63mins.58secs) from a field of 53 entrants. Special mention goes to Mitchell Cross (Team Wheelguru), the youngest rider age 16 years, and Peter Knott (Ribble Valley CRC) the oldest, age 76 years.

Congratulations to all prize winners, and thanks to all those taking part. Tony Lyons, (Event Organiser)
