Congratulations to Johnny (Junior) Burns our 2017 winter league winner or as he will now be known ‘THE YETI’.
Run throughout the winter as a means of encouragement for club members to keep going through the winter, the league is an in formal collation of points awarded for participation in recognised club runs.
Last year Brian Haliday was unbeatable with his commitment and was odds on favourite again this year, however it was not to be with Brian unable to mount any form of defence, given work and home commitments along wih injury.
Enter the dark horse, Junior Burns. Yes he’s everywhere right now. Any weather, any route and any distance. Club ride, training ride and now Open Race. Right from the first week Junior braved the elements and took a lead which he held from October to February. As a clear winner he amassed 270 points with his nearest rival on 190.
Massive well done Junior.
