Well, the 2012 Bear Bones 200 has been and gone. 42 riders lined up at the (rather damp and windy) start, some looking for the elusive sub 24 hour finish and others just hoping to finish … and a few still harbouring grudges from last year!

In 2011 only two riders completed the course in under 24 hours and they had the benefit of dry, calm conditions. So the fact that no fewer than 14 riders claimed a black badge this year is quite astonishing. Last years fastest time was jointly set by Kevin Roderick and Ian Barrington and it was Ian, who raised the bar this year, recording a time of 15H 18M!

The BB 200 returns next October but there will be an added twist. 2013 will be the last time we use this route … so we’re going to do it in reverse, that’s right Bear Bones Backwards. Put October 12th/13th down in your diary if you fancy hurting yourself.
