Back to year calendar -- Cycling Weekly report and pictures


27th September 1998

From Race Organiser, John Rawnsley - "Congratulations to Chris Young for his third win and Reg Haigh, a senior veteran, for his 15th place and also to the 93%" of starters who completed the course. I thank all our marshals and helpers who made this event one of the best we have promoted.

I appeal to competitors in future to respect our rules regarding cycles and only use cyclo-cross bikes that are suitable for all the course and not to change to one for the road and another for descending. If you want to ride straight bars, ride them for all the race and make sure your spare bike(s) has them as well. I know that I am writing about a very small minority of riders who would still finish in the top places without resorting to these unfair tactics.

As you will see from the entry form for 1999, entries are to be sent to our new Entries Secretary, Jonathan Berry, who has helped with the 3 Peaks for many years. I advise riders to enter early as once the limit is reached we shall not exceed it. I am still going to organise the race and am already looking forward to the 40th Anniversary which will be in the year 2000."
