Yorkshire Cycling Federation Luncheon and Prize Presentation

Sunday 25th February saw the annual Yorkshire Cycling Federation (YCF) Annual Luncheon and Prize Presentation take place at Scarthingwell Golf Club near Tadcaster. Otley Cycle Club had a big presence at the gathering to see fellow members collect awards for the 2017 season.

One of the stalwarts not only of Otley Cycle Club but also of cycling in Yorkshire was honoured at the luncheon. John Churchman was awarded Honorary Life Membership of the Veterans Time Trials Association (VTTA), the UK organisation for time triallists 40 years of age and over. John was also given a Yorkshire Group VTTA Special Award for the over 80s BAR with a plus of 40.09. Congratulations to John, a terrific role model.

Helen Goldthorpe, Liz Hills and Claire Jessop all picked up three awards each for the YCF Best All Rounder (BAR), YCF Sporting Courses (SpoCo) and YCF Points competitions, the latter two reported on late last season here. Congratulations too to Helen, Claire and Liz. Let’s hope the ‘team’ can repeat their 2017 success this season.
