Oktoberfest attracts 1,200 riders

Almost 1,200 riders descended on Bristol’s Ashton Court for the season-ending Oktoberfest last weekend.

The event returned for a third year with the usual eight-hour and two four-hour races with a Bavarian twist.

Paul Brennan (Cyclestore.co.uk) won the morning four-hour men’s solo race, while Lydia Gould (Torq Performance) won the women’s category. Richard Kelsall (Go Vegan) then triumphed in the afternoon four-hour men’s solo event and Kate Pickard (London Dynamo) took the women’s title.

George Budd (Salsa Factory Racing) rode to victory in the men’s solo eight-hour race, while Anne Fallows won the women’s event. You can find all the results, across all categories on www.timelaps.co.uk, or you can view and purchase event pictures on www.rightplacerighttime.co.uk
