Scott - pretty good work in the conditions I'd say!
Andrew - impressive position that, especially given the week you've had!
Pete - also good work and shame I never got there in the end. I did manage to drag myself out for a late morning road run just after the race start time and was also lucky with the rain, if not the wind!
Matt - most impressive pace for an xc race and your position really shows the very high quality of the field!
Thanks for the offer Pete - much appreciated. Unfortunately I live the 'wrong' side of Bradenham, so it would be a big diversion to come out to my place then back from where you'd just come! Wife is looking for a lift elsewhere, so it may still happen....
Ouch indeed! Glad you're OK thank goodness. Far too many idiot drivers out there. Plenty of idiot cyclists too, to be fair, but the big difference is they are not in charge of a ton of metal moving at high speed so are generally only a risk to themselves!
Looking doubtful for TVXC tomorrow - Mrs need car for child ferrying duties. She was going to walk, but isn't happy 'cos the weather is going to be so bad
