Men’s Captain’s Mid-season Summary

So far, so good.

I’ll start with the British, where with only one race to go the men’s open team is sat in 3rd. If we win Creag Dhubh we can maybe secure 2nd but that’s the best outcome with Keswick looking to comfortably take gold. In the V50s this is also the case but with Borrowdale already on for a comfortable win. This is providing that both the leading teams in each case actually field a team. The V40s is much more open with a point separating the top four. For this category it comes down to those last 3.4 miles of racing at Creag Dhudh. A win would mean gold but anything else is anyone’s guess. All in all, we’re on for podiums in all categories.

The English open is a full-on battle with Keswick. We could do with beating them on their home turf at Grisedale, but this may be a tall order. Regardless of this we need to show them how to run at Ilam. Both these races will be tough, but we have a shot and just need a strong team out to get the points! The V40s looks quite open still with potential for gold. The V50s again is quite open and in both cases two wins would mean gold. So all we can take from that going forward is we need to win the team at both Grisedale and Ilam, so let’s do it!

As for notable individual performances…
In the British Max Wainwright has maximum points in the U23s. Oli Johnson is currently 3rd V40. Stephen Pyke is also 3rd in the V50s with Dave Taylor not far behind in 5th.
In the English Max and myself are equal 5th in the open class. Max is again leading the U23s with Nathan Lawson currently in 3rd. In the V40s Will Boothman is the highest places Dark Peaker in 12th after a storming run at Blackfell. John Hunt is 6th in the V50s, Joe Blackett 8th in the V55s, David Allen 3rd in the V60s, Keith Holmes 4th in the V65s, and David Tait 4th in the V70s.
Another worthy mention is Lova Chechik, who currently sits 6th in the Lakeland Classics.

Congrats all and lets build on these strong results through the second part of the season!
