Wow, what a weekend that was! Newcastleton, Scotland played host to the national and European 12 & 24 hour solo mountain bike championships for 2011 and the Cotic-AQR Holidays race team headed there in force.
The beautiful setting supplied a superb race course from SIP Events but unfortunately the weather didn't play ball and nearly 20 hours of rain aligned itself perfectly with the race!
Never mind though, as the Cotic-AQR team shone through anyway...
- Kate Potter: 1st in 24 hour women's race
- Anne Dickins: 2nd in 24 hour women's vets race
- Anthony Jordan: 15th in the very competitive men's 24 hour race
So a massive congratulations all and huge thanks to sponsors Cotic, KCNC, Magura, Skins, Purple Extreme, Industry Nine and Torq whose kit kept the team going through the race.
