Wednesday 4th June – Swaledale HDSRL, East Harsley

Wednesday 4th June – Swaledale HDSRL, East Harsley

Report by Tamara Weatherhead: The third Harrogate League race was hosted by Swaledale; a well organised race followed by a well stocked mega buffet! Thanks Swaledale. It’s a very long way up the A1/A684 or whichever route you took, so it was encouraging to still see a few Black and Whites out there. Full results are eagerly awaited as this was also the June club handicap but on the night we didn’t do all badly: Ian Fisher made a surprise appearance,…

Wednesday 4th June – Chevin Fell Race

For Otley, Matt John won in  18.15, it looks like. Sam Stell came 7th in and takes over the title of first local lad from Bob Addey. Graham Lake came 11th, then Tom Potter 35th, Tom Lynch 39th, Richard Clarke 47th, Stephen Boddy 49th and Antonio Cardinale 98th. Looks like it was a tough race, photos courtesy of Shane Ewen, Scott Leach and Debi Nicholson. All the Otley AC photos now up on Flickr. Full results.

(And apologies to Louise, we haven’t got a picture of you.)

Sunday 1st June – ITU World Duathlon Championships, Pontevedra, Spain

Report from Howard Jeffrey: I went to Spain over the weekend to do the ITU World Duathlon championships in Pontevedra. Lined up physically and mentally in pretty good order. Congested start (at 8.35a.m., so cool) helped me ease into the first 5 K which was undulating round the old town with some tight turns. 21.05m got me to the transition and sharply onto the bike leg. Slight technical hitch at the first turn when the handle bars turned but the…
