Sibley shows real strength to tackle Jurassic Cklassic after the three-peaks challenge

Running three peaks in 24 hours was not enough for AVR athlete James Sibley, writes Dave Mutter.

He decided that he would also complete the Jurassic Classic 100 mile cycle ride in the same week!

The route around East Devon starts in Exmouth then heads along the Jurassic coast to Seaton then looping inland before heading back to Exmouth to finish the very hilly 100 miles.

With nearly 3000 metres of climbing, nearly as much as the three peaks combined, Sibley was very pleased to break the seven hour mark, finishing in six hours and 55 minutes. What’s more he also raised over £200 for Prostate Cancer UK charity. Well done, James!
