HONC 30 - 2014 REPORT
A massive thank you to all of our riders for supporting this year’s 30th Anniversary HONC - it’s great to be getting such positive feedback from everyone for our milestone event!

A second massive thank you to our 90 plus volunteers from WCC & CC-CC who planned, staged and ran this year’s event, to our local police support, to our caterers, to Alan at Winchcombe School to Leisure Lakes, to St John Ambulance, to Winchcombe Scouts for the bike wash and to our local landowners.

This year the sunny spring weather showed the Cotswolds at their very best and resulted in hugely improved route conditions. We hope the new start section we introduced provided some new challenges and surprises.

Well done to Jim Mason from WCC, who rode the first HONC 30 years ago. In recognition of this Jim agreed to officially start the event and then went on to successfully complete the 50K route.

The first 100k rider home was David Hayward in 4hrs 30 minutes followed by WCC club member Ian Cartwright

First 50k rider home was Calum Dickinson in 2hrs 25 min.

Well done to all of our Junior riders. Over 50 successfully completed the 50k route with Luke, Adam& Gareth completing the 100k.

Congratulations to Leon Andre from Bigfoot MBC who successfully completed the 50k route and is this year’s winner of our HONC Junior Award. Leon will soon be the proud owner of a new WHYTE 810 650b/27.5” cross country bike.

Thank you again for supporting HONC and we hope to see you back again next year.
