If you’re going to organise a race in the middle of January in the Lake District there’s one thing you can almost guarantee – rain.
The PMBA day/night enduro at Grizedale had it in bucketloads and you can see the highlights above.
We really love the idea of this race. You race three stages in the afternoon and then when the sun goes down you race them again in the dark. Best of all the stages are on trails normally reserved for walkers so there will be no locals advantage.
Bex Tatham, the women’s winner, said: “Night riding was sick. I’ve done a lot last year but not so much last year so it’s really good to be riding on the edge with no peripheral vision but I played it super cautious and got down in one piece.”
The men’s race was won by Callum Russell with a time of 13:40.34 and the women by Bex Tatham with a time of 17:34.97.
The PMBA will now turn to its annual enduro series that starts on March 20 at Gisbrun forest and will also visit Grizedale, Lee Quarry, Kirroughtree and the GNAR bike park.
