BEEF ISLAND RACE

SUNDAY, AUGUST 16

FLYING FRENCHMAN TAKES VIRGIN GORDA RACE

21 riders braved the Virgin Gorda Race on Sunday. Organised by the BVI Mountain Bike Club, this was the first mountain bike race since Hurricane Irma in September 2017.

Unsurprisingly, Philippe Leroy wiped the floor with the field completing the 11.73-mile course in 50 minutes and 55 seconds, Dan Mitchell (56:01) crossed the five minutes later (albeit on a road bike), and Gareth Thomas (1:01:37) took the third place slot. Nineteen riders took on the full loop of torture which saw them climbing 2,200 feet in hot and humid conditions, while Rusty Burns and Sergio Dantas sensibly undertook the shorter fun/novice course.
