Sue Clarke has recently ridden the Gran Fondo Alberto Contador in the Valenciana region of Spain – a tough 160km sportive with a huge amount of climbing in it.  Sue was the first female rider home and the first female rider on the timed climbs as well – well done Sue!

For more information on the event please see http://marchaalbertocontador.com/en/

Sue also entered the FCCV (Fedaracio Ciclisme Communitat Valenciana) Marathon MTB Chamionship race based around Villalonga.  As a foreign rider Sue had to start in last place (!) but in fact won the event by a stunning 20 minutes!  Unfortunately Sue wasn’t allowed to be crowned champion or wear the champions jersey and receive the trophy (insert the Brexit comment of your choice here), but nevertheless won on the day and is of course the ‘moral champion’!

Well done Sue!
