The penultimate English championship race of the year was the 17 mile/4000 ft mudbath of Holme Moss. The wind blew, the rain rained, the mud stuck - so much for the famous drought of 2010. The twisty, turny, uppy, downy, muddy bogs of Yorkshire didn’t really suit any of us, despite a close resemblance to the wetter and gloopier parts of Bowland, and the mood at the end amongst the five Bowlanders was not one of great elation. Mike J finished in 2 hours 50 mins in 36th place and 3rd V50, followed by Leigh Warbie, Nick H, Declan O’D and new member Adrian Lowery. This leaves Mike needing a good result in the final English championship race of 2010 at Shelf Moor on 5th September. Lets get out there to support him.
