David Ivory reports:

Mark Robinson completed the Fred Whitton Challenge on Sunday 10th May. He got away early for a 6am start, as it was raining! Well it is the Lake District so it's par for the course up there! 2100 riders, the event organisation was excellent and the Marshall's were excellent too, only having to slow down a couple of times at junctions, seeing the roads were still open. The public were out in force which made a real difference when hitting the big passes it was great to get cheered on by so many.
