With just two more events to go, Kent Valley have a commanding - and what looks like an unassailable - lead.

Here are the current standings after 6 events:

Kent Valley RC 1769 points
Lancaster CC 1151 points
Lakes RC 860 points
Barrow CW 534 points
Lune RCC 195 points

Thanks to all those - organisers, marshalls, time-keepers & other helpers - who are making these events happen. The next event is the Barrow CW's Knotallow Tarn Hill Climb on Monday, 10th August. Sign-on before 6:50 with first rider off at 7pm. This is what the Barrow CW's website says about it:

A steep climb rising 160m in 1.2 miles. Starting on a gentle rise situated north of Ulverston on Old Hall Road (B521) adjacent to Stone Briggs Farm (the Alpaca farm after Old Hall Farm). The course then turns left at the crossroads with Eller Riggs Brow and passes the Chiltern Seed Farm. The riders go through a narrow part between buildings and must obey marshals instructions. The next section is extremely steep  and narrow up to farm buildings. The road levels for a short time before another kick to Knottallow Tarn (local fishing spot) then a lumpy rollercoaster to the finish situated before the T junction.

Where is it?
Starting adjacent to Stone Briggs Farm (the Alpaca Farm) on Old Hall Road (B521) just north of Ulverston. Grid reference 281802, SATNAV- LA12 7PE.

Parking and Safety
Parking is available along the verge of Old Hall Road for a few cars and (depending on the anglers) parking near the top of the course by Knottallow Tarn. Locals are requested to park in/near the Gill and ride up to the start. Riders must take care in the narrows and especially where it becomes very steep. If riders wish to get back to the start whilst racing is underway they will be directed in a short loop rather than back down the course.

The course record of 6 mins 30 secs is three years old & held by Dave Ralph of Lakes RC. Could it go on Monday?
