In ciuda faptului ca vremea nu a fost foarte buna la Scarborough’s Marine Drive in Anglia, un numar impresionant de oameni au decis sa isi petreaca dupamiaza si seara urmarind Fat Face Night Ride, o cursa spectaculoasa de downhill.

Riderul de la Mojo/Orange, Dan Stanbridge, a castigat cursa si premiul de 500£ cu timpul de 1:12.630, in fata lui James Hughes de la Solid Bikes (1:12.876) si a lui Neil Donoghue de la Team BikeRadar (1:13.194).

In cursa feminina Tracey Moseley a ocupat prima treapta a podiumului cu un timp de 1:22.363, urmata de Helen Gaskell de la Halfords Bike Hut (1:22.694) si de Katy Curd de la Giant(1:24.966)

Dan Stanbridge declara: “Traseul a fost foarte bun si a fost extraordinar sa fi incurajat de atatia oameni. Cand competitia se desfasoara in conditii dificile trebuie sa faci mici compromisuri, sa mergi in viteza dar sa fi in siguranta si sa ajungi intreg la sosire”

Au fost mai multe accidente in aceasta cursa si mai multi participanti au ajuns la Spitalul din Scarborough.

Will Longden, managerul echipei Team BikeRadar spune: “Evenimentul a fost frumos, un final de sezon clasic. Din pacate vremea a fost potrivnica, ploaia si vantul au facut ca unele zone ale traseului sa se transforme in adevarate capcane. Dar totul face parte din provocarea curselor de downhill, nu este asa?”
