Well done to all those who took part in this year’s Dartmoor Classic! The weather was probably worse than any of the previous years that I have taken part with strong headwinds making the first half particularly difficult. Fortunately, those same winds gave some assistance for the second half and I saw many smiling faces on the roads to Moretonhampstead.
Yes you may have seen me there – I didn’t enter this year and chose to ride “against the flow” from the finish to Moretonhampstead passing many smiling riders (and a few with serious race faces on) who were realising that the worst was over with.
For those who rode it for the first time, you will probably find yourself entering again next year (although you might not be agreeing with me right now!) and, with better weather, you will acheive a better time that’s for sure.
How did your Dartmoor Classic go?
