Final results of the night series are published below. Due to the curtailment of the series, overall results are based on the best 2 scores. Congratulations to our series winners:
- Short – Sarah Darley (female and overall champion) and Phil Conway.
- Long – Aimee Darley. There was a 3 way tie for the men between Adam Conway, Ed Catmur & Matthew Vokes.
We will sort you out with well deserved prizes at some point.
The series couldn’t happen without the hard work and dedication of our Organiser/Planners, huge thanks to Sue, Pete, Don, Dave and Duncan.
It’s never too early to start thinking of the next series, it would be great to have some fresh faces – do get in touch () if you’re interested in getting involved.
*UPDATED WITH SERIES RESULTS*
Thanks to all of you for coming to the Highgate Street-O race last night and to Tatia Engelmore for organising!
Here are the (slightly updated) Final Race Results and I’ve also updated the Series Results. Any queries please to
I hope to see many of you at the series finale in a new area around Kings Cross on Tuesday 14 April – details are now on the website!
The Wimbledon Common Night-O (actually on Putney Heath) attracted 57 entries, in total about 65 people given those participating in pairs or threes.
Although the weather was not as rainy as forecast, the going underfoot was decidedly “heavy”, with depressions being ponds and many paths being ditches. I intended that the courses be somewhat easier than for the usual night-O but many competitors seemed to disagree.
Despite recovering from his marathon at the weekend, Ed Catmur (SLOW) narrowly won the Long course from Matthew Vokes (DRONGO), with Aimee Darley (SN) the leading female.
On the Short course, Callum Gilhooley & Ben Toogood (SLOW) together lead the field with Sarah Darley (GO) beating the other ladies.
Thanks are due to the usual suspects for their assistance, without which these events simply would not happen.

2020 Series Results
Here are the Series Standings after the first event from the 2020 Series. The sheet shows scores normalised out of 500 for each event.
Results, Splits and Race Reports for all events can be found on the BMBO website.
Congratulations to the current leaders in each class:
- Men’s Vets (50+) – Ifor Powell
- Women’s Vets (50+) – Louise Oliver
- Men’s Seniors (18-49) – Stephen Dadswell
- Women’s Seniors (18-49) – Rachel Drew
- Juniors (Under 18) – Harvey Humphrey
Our first event was based at The Three Horseshoes pub in Thursley and covered the fantastic area around Thursley Common, Hankley Common and the Devil’s Punch Bowl. Navigation proved tricky as there were trails all over the place. The forecast rain went elsewhere and although there were some muddy sections most of the trails had a good surface well suited to all year riding .
Series prizes are presented to the top 3 finishers in the each following category: Men’s Vets (50+), Women’s Vets (50+) , Men’s Seniors (18-49) , Women’s Seniors (18-49), Juniors (Under 18).
To be eligible for prizes, participants must have attended at least 2 events. Course planners are credited for the events they plan with the average of their best 2 event results.
