Top bloke from what little I've spoken to him. Go TC!

Boing!

Anyone who's not voted, get your vote in now, he's not far off the lead.

It would also appear that you can 'accidentally' vote twice, well it did allow me to from a work pc but maybe thats due to a roving profile or something?

BB.it only lets you vote from 2 different comps..otherwise the message says we have already counted your vote.............

you can vote from your phone though as well

Ive voted from my home and work pc at least twice!  seems to be a glitch which doesnt always register that youve previously voted, could depend on your connection, roaming profile, whether youre accepting cookies etc.

In the interests of research ill see what happens when I try my phone.

Its neck and neck TC is 1% behind now!

As an experiment only you understand, I manage to vote twice from my home PC

Check the text as sometimes it does say 'Thank you, we have already counted your vote'

BLATANT copy from TripTalk  for the record:

I'm just the flag bearer for the EnduroMan Deca tho - everyone who put themselves on the start line is a hero, and any votes are for them too: 

David Miles daveM 
Christopher Ette ChrisE 
Mark Padley 
Carl Atkinson carlmadasafish 
Edward Page Big Ted 
Michele Santilhano 
Guy Willard WakefieldGuy 
Monique Hollinshead 
Konrad Renard 
Keith Laing - gump 

For the record, my Palmares? (FFS) this year includes competing (mostly but just completing the last 2) at all the British iron/ultra tri events, for the 2nd consecutive year. == 20 iron mans this year. It was only 13 last year (wot a lightweight). 
This is very silly btw. And expensive. And time consuming. And ruins your health. 
Continuing to do silly numbers of more destructive standalone IMs so soon after the Deca was just the last piece of the experiment in taking the p1ss with what my body could hold up to. I was very chuffed to do these successfully with little ill effect (until I got a virus I couldnt shake off in Sept) most notably I was flying at the Outlaw just 3 weeks after the Deca. Go figure!   

Jan 1 HardMoors30 (1st) 
Feb 2 Double EnduroMan Lanzarote (4th) 
Belvoir Challenge trail mara DNF 
Mar: Howarth Hobble 32m trail ultra 
Hardmoors 55m trail ultra

Apr: Caythorpe trail mara 
VLM 3.08 
May: Lincoln GP 110m CycloSportif 14th ish 
Jun: Deca Iron EnduroMan 149 hrs, um 1st 
ForestMan iron tri 
Jul: Outlaw iron tri (10h47) 
XMan / XTri24 extreme overnight MTB tri - Finished in time limit! 
IMUK 120th 
Aug: Yorkshire Dales extreme middle dist tri 
Midnight Man iron tri - did an extra run lap FFS  
The Big Woody iron tri 3rd 
Sep: Helvellyn extreme middle dist tri

The Brutal single  iron tri 
Oct: Spires and Steeples trail mara 3rd 
Round Rotherham 50m trail ultra 8h12 
Helloween on the Humber 6hr ultra - 1st (40 miles) 

The most amazing thing is that I've done this lot whilst being the worlds most disorganized and late feckwit. 

It remains to be seen whether my metabolism is burnt out for 2013....

We should quote this next time someone asks whether their half ironman warm up event is 6 years before their Ironman and whether that leaves enough time to recover

On the subject of voting:

The Henley Standard are running an online poll whether next year's Challenge Henley event should be cancelled. Obviously it shouldn’t.

It would be great if you can go on the poll, vote no and get as many people as possible that you know to also vote no. For those that do help, much obliged. The link: 

http://www.henleystandard.co.uk/



 - The poll is on the front page.

good call barlist, Henley was great, and the traffic management efforts made by Just Racing to lessen the impact on the locals were huge, I was well impressed, and erm, I've done a few events!  55 IMs actually, counting 5 Doubles as one, or 60 then if 2.

I'm watching you double voters!!!

Hope you all like the site if it's new to you. Take a look around while you are there and you can always follow me on Twitter or join the conversation on Facebook.

If anyone runs a website or blog and can take a second to link to the site or give it a nice plug it would be great to spread the word!
