That Rob Downs coasted the win didn't he? Had time for a pint and a fag before the second place came in!
You are right SwissJames...and I was second (but a victory for age over youth). He is annoyingly fast and annoyingly in my age group too although not for long as I move up in December. The closest I have ever got to him is maybe 45 seconds over 5k, 90 seconds over 10k.
But I doubt he drinks pints, and I'm sure he doesn't smoke fags.
Enjoyed yesterday and felt good just to run it as a race rather then trying to get a PB which was never going to happen for me on that course.
Haha yes. I would enjoyed a pint at the finish. I think that once I was clear I gained some benefit from following the lead bike.
But I wouldn't have kept up with BHB's sprint for 2nd place.
Oh I didn't realise you were both on here!
Great run, both of you.
Thanks for all of the comments, We will take everything on board and improve for next year.
It was a Steep learning curve over a short space of time. I am glad that on the whole people enjoyed the event and with the lessons learnt next year will be an improvement.
