A brisk westerly wind made for a hard slog up the lane from Ogle towards Belsay, though surprisingly as many riders went quicker than two weeks earlier than went slower.
Fastest once again was Adam Wild, though with a somewhat reduced advantage of 50 seconds over Dave Robinson with John Warrington just 3 seconds further back. Angela Hibbs broke the 24 minute barrier for the first time, and Lizzy Lewis-Smith was fastest female Vagabond with a time of 28:43. It was great to see a number of first time riders having a go.
In the Short Distance BAR standings, Adam Wild has a significant lead over Dave Robinson, with Angela Hibbs in 3rd. Dave Robinson leads the Veterans BAR ahead of Ronnie Thompson and Richard Exley.
