my 1st sportive that proved a real challenge! cycling towards princetown for the second time i wondered if i would ever complete the ride. at the feedstation i heard someone mention a bronze medal so i thought lets go for it. another 30 miles or so i reached the finish and scraped a bronze medal time. i was knackered yet elated. a great course and very well managed. i wil back next year looking for a silver medal. thankyou to all concerned with the running of the event.

An excellant event, superbly organised, on quiet enjoyable roads and with the best marshalls of many events that I have ridden, if only MDCC could control the weather, overall outstanding.

the long trip to the first feed station was all uphill and i had to save my drink, luckily it was not a very hot day, otherwise my water would have run out well before the 32mile first stop

I have completed all of the dartmoor classics todate (100 mile route) and without exception they have been a good example of how an event should be run. The route is usually 'tough but fair', the organisation slick. The only reason that I haven't marked it up as a 100 percent is that I believe that you can always continue to make small improvements through further fine tuning. Full and well deserved credit to the MDCC and marshalls.

A great event, I couldn't fault the organisation and support. Many thanks to everyone involved, the marshals out on the course were full of support and enthusiasm. This was my first sportive after taking up cycling 6 months ago.and it's certainly encouraged me to sign up for more. I'm still buzzing a week later. Something for all levels of cyclist to enjoy and achieve. Well done and please keep up the great work.

Yet again an outstanding event! Even with the change of route, which must have been a real challenge for the organisers on the day, everything seemed to be smooth and under control. Well done indeed!

Huge number of riders caused a bit of congestion. Easy to go too fast at times, downhill towards cattle grids, rough and narrow roads etc but this is rider's responsibility. Marshalling was great and the atmosphere in the village made it a great occasion for the whole family, useful goody bag and brilliant music too. Food stop was busy, largely due to people like me spending too much time there. I had a great time and it was a real challenge. Thank you for all the work.

Once again another excellent classic. I havent scored the support very highly as I never used it and was unaware of what was available. I found the website poor, it wasnt even using secure https when I was entering my details.

A fantastic ride - bring on next year! Just one request - could we have a marshal on the final junction on to the main road, rather than just before it?
