The results compared to the target times are here. Any queries to Mike Godfree. Thanks to Dave Nevell for calculating the predicted times. In a conventional Club Champs Rachel Duckworth would have been first across the line on this basis.
So the club trophies go to:
First man – Andrew Middleton (7:20 ahead of prediction) – Chris Yardley trophy
First woman – Kim Buxton (6:23 ahead) – Judy Buckley trophy
First junior – Rachel Duckworth (13:26 ahead) – Lithuanian trophy
Fastest man – Richard Parkin (6:08/km – adjusted for declared climb) Peter Bourne trophy
Fastest woman – Sally Calland (7:46/km) Karen Jackson trophy
Hopefully awarded at the ceilidh in February
