A heart-felt “well done” to our five NS riders who attempted Paris-Brest-Paris 2019 this week. This was a challenging iteration with 1000 km of headwinds and cold overnight temperatures down to +4C. Preliminary data indicates a DNF rate in the 40% range, much higher than usual.
Congrats to our members who completed PBP – all in sub-80-hour times:
Adam Pearce 72hr 53min
John Archibald 74hr 55min
Mark Beaver 76hr 39min
Micheline McWhirter 77hr 19min
And special mention to Gordon Launcelott whose neck muscles gave out at 1050km causing him to DNF but kept riding to complete the course anyway.
Well done all!
