A wet and muddy day for the mountain bikers saw a lot of riders switch to the shorter routes, I think I’ve got most riders in the right categories -

After a dry sunny start on Sunday for the sportive the weather took a definite turn for the worse, it looks like the cold and wet weather along with stories of multiple punctures caused many riders to cut to shorter distances. There were some pretty miserable conditions so well done to everyone especially those that actually stuck with it and made it round the long loop. I went out without a rain jacket to take down the course arrows and ended up having to get a someone to drive me out one of our demo Gore jackets to the drink station so I could carry on.
