    Default Three Peaks - Rapha video

    Lachlan Morton does it again. These have been enjoyable to watch, at least for me. They give me a push out the door to go riding.

    I really like these too! I watched the Leadville one with my wife a few weeks ago—she hasn’t been on her bike in years—and a day or two later she was talking about getting back on the bike. They’re good for motivation.

    I always wondered how a Kenian cross country runner with a weightweenies bike will do.

    Nice
    Three Peaks was always on my “someday” list until my in-laws suddenly upped sticks and moved from N. Yorks to Ireland...

    My wife liked it too, which is strange I guess. She's pretty much given up on watching GCN after Emma Pooley left and they stopped using Katherine as a regular presenter (there are now no women on the channel unless they are guests.) So I was surprised she liked watching Lachlan destroy himself in each of the videos he did for Rapha. He looks like he is stuck together with sticks and packing tape, so perhaps it is because he looks so breakable. Or his general good humor about incredible conditions. Or that he wears Rapha. Or his curly hair.

    My wife is often a mystery. Or I am often too clueless to figure her out.

    Thanks for posting that, I had not seen it although I do follow the results of this race.

    There is also a running race (fell race) which takes the peaks in reverse order from the cyclocross race. I have completed this three times but have never attempted the bike race.

    Rob Jebb won in 2019, in this video. Rob Jebb has won the 3 Peaks Cyclocross race 12 times (his first win was in 2000) but he has also won the Three Peaks Fell Race (running) 4 times.

    My ambition is to finish the running race in the over 70 category, I am currently 67. There are two time cut offs in the running race which are quite hard to meet so there are usually only between none and three finishers each year in the over 70 category.

    Quoting my friend Gethodman, "I reckon Lachy is happy as a pig in shit to be able to do these events and rep a pro team and get paid."

    I raced 3 Peaks in 2016 in 4 hours 17 minutes. The second fell Whernside did me in as I walked all the way up and ran all the way down.
