    A solid 237th for team Spanner.
    I think that’s taught the 3 people who finished behind me a serious lesson:
    Preparation is EVERYTHING.

    Once more, I’d like to thank Rizla cigarette papers, Findus for the lasagne sponsorship, The Hare & Hounds – Radcliife, Bar-B-Que land kebab house – Bury and Moorhouse’s Brewery.
    Without you, non of this would be possible.

    Good night in the pub last night too – head now feels like there’s a Frenchman living in it.

    Pete, you missed the letter H out of ‘preparation is everything’. Well done everybody. As I said at the start – to me you are all winners… I always was shit at maths.
    Particular well done to Jenn Hopkins – 1st Lady. Could she be on for two first places in a week (fell race next Fri night) ?

    A pretty solid last place finish for me! I hope that’s a lesson to you all about commitment and dedication! If you’re going to do something, then do it properly. And when it comes to being slow…..

    Actually…. I got chatting to a few people while hiding in the woods (so I wouldn’t have to do another lap) then i started heckling everyone else, which turned out to be great fun, and i sort of forgot to finish for a bit. Oh well πŸ˜€

    Man flu meant I dropped 8 places on last year…honest, I really did have a cold…I promise.
    I wasn’t last….just!

    So what? I had a cracking day and met some cracking folks. See you next year.

    151st for me.Should have rode the cross bike!

    190th! Worst result so far!

    Although I beat you by a whole 16 places h4muf, I wouldn’t recommend the cross bike. It was only an advantage wading through the great bog of pull your shoes off and the little steep bank of um, steep bank ness. I was on it because my back refused to countenance picking up a more comfortable steed and was a bit sad when Trio25 came up behind me going wheeeeee on the berms and whoop di doos. Hey ho, it was still probably as much fun as you can have on ‘crosser πŸ™‚

    112, that was a lot higher than I thought I was ! should have eaten more during it… next year I may take it seriously.. maybe not that serious πŸ™‚

    I crashed out πŸ™ Anyone know what position the cut off between 3 and 4 laps is?

    I was on for 4 and just interested so I can try and improve next year.

    I did 4 @ 171st if that helps?

    184! I’m pleased with that but starting to think starting in the cat 6 at the back was a mistake. Top 150 to aim for next year? πŸ˜‰

    Pretty sure I did 4 laps.

    Certainly didn’t make things easy! Still, it was a nice friendly bunch at the back, couldn’t have asked for a better queue on the 1st lap πŸ™‚

    149th for me, felt I could have done better, I think I tried to pace myself too much!

    I was still doing a wee behind a tree when the race started, hee hee! Might’ve cost me a few places!

    I’m down as a DNF.. Not sure why, I’m sure I did finish… πŸ˜•

    I came through at the end of my 4th lap at 1hr 55 and they pulled me over so I guess if you weren’t on your 5th by 1hr45 it was 4 Laps for a lot of us.

    Like other comments on starting position I think it made a big difference as it took me at least a lap until things thinned out enough to do a reasonable amount of overtaking.

    If I’d realised they’d be the bottlenecks I’d have hammered it more on the first climb from the start as I think as long as you maintained your speed your position the top pretty much dictated where you ended up.

    Hopefully top 100 next year.

    Too right! It’s quite hard to race people when you’re having a chat about something or other at the same time! πŸ™‚

    really happy with my 4 laps (206 finish)

    as a matter of interest most people seem to do between 3-5 laps. I think Nick Craig lapped me twice, did the top finishers complete 6 laps?

    Any idea on a very approx number of laps ridden by riders? Just intrigued if the cross riders really do benefit that much.

    Once again big thanks to all involved for a great day, roll on HTN 2014

    Nick Craig was riding a 26″ wheel MTB

    It was probably the first HtN where I thought being on an mtb was an advantage.

    ninkynonk
    Member

    sorry NBT I knew Nick was riding a 26er I was just thinking moreso about the large number of cross bikes.

    I was really impressed with myself that on the first lap I’d managed to ride all the “rideable” climbs only for Nick to pedal past me as I was dragging my sorry ass & bike up one of the un-rideable ones, ha !!!

    Just wait till next year:
    I’m bringing cake & Scrabble, and there will be a ‘back of the queue’ bookclub:

    The tome to bone up on will be…..

    ……in honour of Mr Ballantine’s 59th place this year.
    (It can’t have been him, can it?)

    And if anyone would care to join me in a mid race picnic next year, I’ll bring a cocktail shaker and a jar of maraschino cherries.
    No point in letting standards slip, is there?

    Nick brought with him a cross bike and a mountain bike.

    He only rode his mountain bike.

    Finished 145, doing 4 laps in 2 hours and a minute. Trip to minor injuries this morning, then of to A&E to find my crash on the first lap has left me with a fractured elbow πŸ˜• Fortunately the pain in my arm was offset by the stinking hangover I had this morning. Again thanks to those that organised/ marshalled and generally made stuff happen, I had a fantastic day!

    Copying out the results to a spreadsheet reveals the laps behind the winner. Looks like nick Craig managed 6 laps as I defo did 4 and from the results was 2 laps off him. Pleased with my placing. Target to beat for next year. πŸ˜†

    231st.
    3 laps.

    not bad for a 40something fat lad whose heart failed 9 years ago…

    (in my mind, i won!)

    Of the large number that finished with 4 laps I very much suspect I would have finished toward the back. I did 3 laps, all of which were around the 32 min mark before having a delusional Danny Hart moment on the jumps 😳

    I’ve been classified as 240th out of 244 survivors.

    I AM SO HAPPY!
