Bristol Bikefest 2011
We're back from a very successful weekend of racing at the 2o11 Bristol Bikfest, with another couple of podium places from the girls. Saturday saw Jo finishing 3rd in the Female 12 Hour Solo, completing 20 laps in 11 hours 45 minutes. Mark and Huw were up against some very fast competition in the Men's 12 Hour Pairs category and finished in 6th place, completing 27 laps in 11 hours 42 minutes. Scott finished his first 12 hour solo race, completing 21 laps in 11 hours 43 minutes, while Andrew finished 6th in the Men's 12 Hour Solo Singlespeed category completing 18 laps in 11 hours 30 minutes. He also made it harder for himself by riding it on rigid forks!
Dave, riding with the Miggly Moos Team this weekend in the Team Old Gits Category finished 3rd, while Jonny rode well with the Beyond 9 to 5 Team.
Sunday saw a complete change in the weather from Saturday's glorious warm sunshine and dry, dusty course, to heavy showers and a very changeable, wet, slippery, but still fun, course. Following on from Zoe's 12 hour solo at Erlesoke last week, she finished 3rd in the Female 6 Hour Solo, completing 9 laps in 5 hours 44 minutes.
After very little rest and recovery, Mark and Huw were up again in the 6 Hour Men's Pairs category and narrowly missed a podium place by 4 minutes, coming 4th with 12 laps in 5 hours 44 minutes.
