(2/4) Mid-week Score, Lee Quarry, Jun 15 2016
Date of event: Wed 15th Jun 16
Type of event: Local (D)
Nearest town: Bacup, Rossendale
In order to make the competition area large enough for a 45 minute score, we combined Lee Quarry with Stubbylee and Moorland Parks. Two very contrasting areas. We hope you factored in the time taken for the 500m dead leg between the two areas.
Danny's course was planned so that only one competitor might visit all the controls in 45 minutes. In the end no one managed that feat, with Ian Farrell topping the list by visiting 18 out of the 21.
Congratulations to Graham Lloyd who came out on top having narrowly missed the 45 minute time limit by 8 seconds!
Congratulations to Steve Wilson SELOC and Colin Smith PFO who currently top the MAXI and MINI league table respectively after two events. Best 3 results of 4 to count, so all to play for in the next two weeks.
We hope you enjoyed this week's variety of terrain with the added difficulty of judging when to head off downhill for the parks. See you at Towneley next Wednesday.

About the area/map
Lee Quarry is well known to mountainbikers, who have created trails around, up and down the old spoil tips. Rossendale Borough Council now manage the site and have made safe the most dangerous parts (e.g. 10m vertical crags) and improved many of the natural tracks.
For foot-O the interest is in the complex contour detail. The terrain is hard, fast and undulating with many steep slopes to overcome. There is no undergrowth! Staying in touch with the map is the name of the game.
Please note: when entering our events your name may appear in the results section of this website or in newspaper reports.
