Jebb takes record ninth Three Peaks cyclo-cross win

Victoria Wilkinson and Rob Jebb, winners, Three Peaks cyclo-cross 2012

Rob Jebb (Hope Factory Racing) secured a convincing solo victory in the 50th Three Peaks on Sunday, a win which gives him a record ninth victory in the prestigious event in North Yorkshire.

The 37-year-old Cumbria-based Yorkshireman covered the 40 kilometres in 3-09-21, and while he was almost 17 minutes shy of his own course record, he still took victory by ten minutes over his nearest rival as the wet, cold and windy conditions took their toll.
