The 2014 CTW challenge was a huge success raising over £45,000 for ENABLE Scotland in it’s 60th Anniversary year. To celebrate this fantastic milestone of the charity the entry fee was reduced to £60 per person with no minimum fundraising target which encouraged almost double the amount of participants from 2013.
Kenny Logan and Callum Skinner were our cycling ambassadors for this years event. Kenny Logan came along to Knockhill Racing Circuit to set the participants off on their epic challenge and even took to the track for a few laps.
Graeme Obree and his son Jamie, took on the 24hr challenge in a team of 4 which included headline sponsor, Artemis Charitable Funds, representative and previous solo participant Graeme Mitchell and The Daily Record’s, George Johnston.
We were delighted to see so many past challengers returning to take on the circuit again and better their previous laps along with many new participants. Unfortunately the weather was not so kind this year and the rain started early afternoon and staying on until darkness fell. Participants carried on throughout the night and were delighted to see the sun come up around 7am leaving only a few hours left to complete the challenge.
Overall 75 participants took part, 19 Solos and 16 teams. Solo winner Andy Dobinson from 2012 winning team Glasgow Green Cycling Club was delighted to walk away with the trophy having lead the solos from the beginning and achieving and amazing 221 laps / 287 miles and climbing approx. 25000 ft. Team Winners, Fife Council Property Services were runners up to Glasgow Green Cycling Club in 2012 and were extremely pleased to return in this year to take the title as team winners.
