2012 Open 50

The 2012 Open 50 was held on Saturday 28th July on J4/16.

Simon Bridge repeated his win of 2011 in a stunning 1:45:52. Simon only just missed setting a new event record. The record – 1:45:49 – which for four years was also the course and district record was set by Charles McCulloch in 2005. The course record – 1:43:18 – was set by Michael Hutchinson in the 2009 National 50.

At the HQ at Cranage we were in the sun most of the afternoon and evening with just a few drops of rain. At the Knutsford end of the course riders had to contend with torrential rain and hail! The conditions make Simon’s time even more remarkable.
