The 2018 Devon Dirt was a big success, with more than 300 riders setting out along Devon’s flower-lined lanes around Landscove and South Dartmoor.

This year was special as Cycling UK had nominated the event as one of their ‘Challenge Series’ rides, so all the finishers received a full goody bag plus certificates and a specially designed commemorative T-shirt.

There were no spill or injuries, but there was plenty of mud about.
