Dave Achieves 10 Year Milestone
We're not usually in the business of blowing Dave Atkinson's Trumpet (he usually manages that himself!) but on 27th June he finished the Alternative 3 Coasts 600KM audax which means he has now ridden 10 Super Randonneur Series from 2001 to 2010 - an SR is achieved by completing a 200, 300, 400 and 600KM event in the same year-which grants him the award of Ultra Randonneur, so well done Dave. It was rumoured that he was considering retirement from long distance audax but his audax mentor of many years Chris Crossland pointed out that only a handful of riders have ever achieved 2 Ultra Randonneur Awards, but that Dave is young enough to achieve 3 or more.....................looks like his long suffering wife will have to cope for a bit longer!!
