We’ve just heard that the organisers of the 2019 Ard Rock Enduro have had to take the difficult decision to cancel this weekend’s event due to biblical rainstorms that have led to flash flooding in Swaledale.
In scenes that mirror the unfortunate Malverns Classic in June that had to make a similar decision, Swaledale, venue of the annual Ard Rock Enduro festival, has suffered from heavy rain, hail and flash flooding – with hard rain starting on Friday night and not really stopping since.
Unlike the Malverns, the main concerns aren’t the camping fields and the courses, but of the whole valley infrastructure, which has seen roads, bridges and walls washed away.
