Rob Jebb bids for tenth Three Peaks triumph
The annual Three Peaks Cyclo Cross, which is widely recognised as the toughest off-road cycle race in the world, takes place on Sunday from its familiar start and finish location at Helwith Bridge.
The event features more than 40 miles of arduous pedalling and more than 5,000 feet of ascent and descent over the towering contours of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-Ghent. It has attracted a big total of 670 entrants from far and wide across the British Isles and also from eight different countries overseas.
Among them is defending men’s champion Rob Jebb, from Bingley, who is bidding for a record tenth victory.
Defending women’s champion, Skipton’s Victoria Wilkinson, will unfortunately be missing due to her challenge in the Edale Skyline Fell Race which is a round of the English Fell Championships that was postponed when the course was snowbound on its originally-scheduled date in March.
