Friend of Singletrack Jason Miles took a year off Strathpuffer this time round, but his fellow Team JMC rider Jon Entwistle raced as half of a pair with his friend Mike, and they got onto the podium in third place. Guy Martin came 35th in the solo category, but he did also spent the three days immediately before Strathpuffer riding his bike up there from Lincolnshire! We don’t know if he rode back, but he did grab a few hours sleep mid race. A photo of him here via Twitter, and full results over at Lapped.
