Rob Jebb (Hope Factory Racing) secured a record-breaking ninth victory in the 50th Three Peaks in North Yorkshire on Sunday, crossing the line more than ten minutes ahead of his nearest rival.

The Hope Factory Racing rider from Staveley in Cumbria covered the 37 mile course, which takes in the peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-Ghent, in 3:09:21. More than ten minutes back was his team-mate Paul Oldham, while 2011 champion Nick Craig (Scott UK) had to settle for third spot.

Low cloud and heavy rain greeted the riders as they lined up for the start at Helwith Bridge, and that was only made worse by strong winds on all three of the summits in conditions described by organiser John Rawnsley as the worst in 30 years. At the finish in Helwith Bridge the medical teams were busy treating riders for exposure and exhaustion.

Jebb and Oldham attacked as soon as the race was de-neutralised and turned onto the tracks leading to the foot of Simon’s Fell. They both had a clear lead through the farmyard, but as they ran up the fell Jebb opened up a small gap on Oldham, who never saw him again as he disappeared into the mist.

As Jebb came down off the summit of Ingleborough towards Cold Cotes he already led by more than five minutes. He kept the pressure on by switching to a specially configured bike with carbon rims as he aimed to make the most of the speed available on the road sections.

At Chapel-le-Dale with over 27 km completed Oldham had closed the gap by a minute, but Jebb was in full flow and riding at a different level to the other 650 competitors.

Over the top of Whernside and down the fast rocky descent to Ribblehead Viaduct Jebb was eight minutes ahead of Oldham. Closely followed by 2011 winner Nick Craig tagging onto a small group of riders that included Neal Crampton (Crosstrax), Dan Whitehead (Bike Station Ballater), Andrew Peace (Crosstrax) and Steven Macinnes (Isle of Mull CC).

Jebb again switched to a faster bike for the road section from Ribblehead to the foot of Pen-y-Ghent lane, and then began the final ascent of Pen-y-Ghent. At the summit he was approximately 20 minutes behind the fast schedule timing, but was still 9 minutes ahead of Oldham. The visibility at the summit was only 15 metres, with driving rain and high winds, but a small crowd had still gathered to applaud the riders efforts.

Jebb had a trouble-free descent of the steep and challenging Pen-y-Ghent, and by the time he got to the last two-mile road section at the bottom back to the finish he knew he had his ninth victory in the bag.

Victory clearly meant a lot to Jebb, not just because it was his ninth but because it was the 50th edition of this classic cyclo cross race – and some might say it could be the last.

But afterwards, Jebb said: “There has been some talk today about this being the last race, but I hope it continues. I feel I’ve got a lot more years in me and I certainly want to make it ten wins, also I want the race to continue so that my children can race and I can come and support them.”

And Paul Oldham added: “I was outclassed by Rob Jebb today, there was no way I could catch him when he disappeared up Simon’s Fell.

On the road section I put in a huge effort to reduce the gap, but I paid for it on the climb of Whernside. There was ten minutes gap at the finish, and that’s a good indication of how much better Rob is than everybody else.”

And last year’s winner, Nick Craig, said: “When Jebb and Oldham attacked on the road I couldn’t hold their wheel and I had to let them go and as soon as I went through the farmyard at the foot of Simon’s Fell I knew I was racing for second or third place.”

The women’s race was won by Skipton-based Victoria Wilkinson (JD Cycles) – 40 years after her father Chris Wilkinson won the race in 1972.

She clocked 3-59-17 to beat 2011 winner Louise Robinson (Isla Bikes) by more than three minutes, and afterwards said: “If the weather is like this I won’t be riding ever again, it’s been an horrendous experience and not what I want to be doing!” Experience and history shows that Victoria will probably be back for more, it's in the blood and she can't get away from it.

And Robinson added: “Victoria is a world class fell runner and she’s done a brilliant ride today. The conditions were in her favour because there wasn’t much riding today but lots of running and walking. But whatever the conditions next year I will be back next year to get my title back.”

Meanwhile at the prize presentation, retiring organiser John Rawnsley thanked all the volunteers and riders for their involvement in the race over the last 50 years and said he is in talks with other interested parties to keep the race going and hopefully an announcement will be made in the very near future.
