Each team had to complete 2 laps of the loop road in the village, with a hair raising ride down a steep hill. During the race they also had to down pints of ale at each of the 3 pubs. The event's held every year to raise money for charity. Here's a snapshot of the day.

Father Christmas donned his scuba gear and immersed himself in Hastings's Aquarium's tropical ocean display - sharing his swim with sharks, rays and hundreds of bright ray fish.
Several metres underwater may not be the first place you’d expect to come face to face with Father Christmas.
It just goes to show there really isn’t anywhere Santa can’t deliver presents – and it’s certainly a lot warmer than the North Pole.
Santa’s unexpected dive was a particularly welcome treat for a youngster who was enjoying a birthday party at the aquarium.
Father Christmas and his elf surprised the birthday party by first going in to the café to say hello and then invited all the children to go and watch them dive – they loved it!"
