Strava world-record-chasing rider still on target

Yorkshireman Richard Nutt is second in Strava's June mileage chart with 1845.8km cycled so far this month

What is effectively the world’s biggest mass participation cycling event is hotting up. The Strava June MTS Challenge, where anyone can register to see how far they can ride in the month with most daylight, is turning into a serious competition. And Richard Nutt from Rotherham is still right up at sharp end.

As of this afternoon, 119,464 people from around the world had registered, and between them they’ve ridden over 21 million kilometres. Leading them all is Dave Pecuch of Montreal, Canada with 2033.3 kilometres. But Nutt isn’t far behind in second place with 1845.8 kilometres. While Gabriele Aquistapace from Lombardy in Italy is third with 1659.9. Suffolk’s Cindy Parsons is first lady with 1594.6 kilometres, as well as being sixth overall.
