Not only did corsaRosa league riders have to tackle the harder and hillier Addingham based V810 course on Sunday 21st August but they also had to contend with a strong headwind for over half the course on the run to Skibeden traffic island on the outskirts of Skipton.
And for the last few riders, rain at the roundabout made for some nervous cornering as they turned off the A59 onto the A65 to head back to the finish on the Addingham bypass.
Otley CC riders times were as follows.
James Cullen 31:06
Sophie Hewitson 34:08
Gill Arnett 35:03
Michael Kitchen 35:31
Fastest overall was Duncan Thorpe of albaRosa in 27:47. Nicky Green, also of albaRosa, was fastest woman in 32:06

The next and last event of the 2016 league takes place Sunday 4th September on the V818 at Ben Rhydding.
