This year’s Brough Rough ‘N’ was one of the toughest yet with the battering across the moorland. The brave 64 who attended had met again with the challenge that are the Brough Rough ‘N’ sections.
The rain made even the most straightforward section seem tricky! But all who rode enjoyed the course thoroughly enjoyed themselves, with some outstanding riding coming from Chris Alford, Joe Spivey and Chris Pearson. All of whom came close to taking the win from Rich Timperley who kept his calm and overcame the conditions to take the win with only a slack 1 to his name.
With Timps the newly crowned king of the Brough Rough N’ he will take home the Andy Atkinson memorial shield, being handed out for the 1st time. He is now the first of (we hope) many riders to hold this honour, until next year when it will be contended all over again!
Joe Spivey, Jonny Carr and Chris Pearson laid out the course and did a great job of handling the changing conditions overnight. Thanks to all the S&H team for the job of setting up on the day and helping raise money along the way.
All the riding aside we managed to raise over £1000 between the chosen charities, The Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Bluebell Wood Hospice.
A massive thank you goes to the landowner for allowing the event to take place and to all the observers who braved the cold and rain to support the event and make it as special as it always is. Thank you again to all who came and contributed without you it wouldn’t be possible.
