Nice pics Innes. I thought the Haribo Hill bridge would probably be a good place to get action shots of fallers but never saw any. I cleaned it and the hill 10 times but then started walking it after a very close wobble because I was too tired. The muddy descent just before the 2nd marshall station is where I saw most crashes! I was guilty of the occasional dab there myself.
The place I saw most “offs” was the lumpy big rock towards the end of the rocky section – someone would get it wrong or stop there and cause a bit of a pile-up behind. I nearly launched myself over the bars in a dip between rocks in the middle of the night (fortunately nobody about to witness it!)Posted 6 years agoewangronkSubscriber
Brown- Its just clicked who you are. Well done mate, that second place was well deserved. There was no way I could match your last two laps and I just couldn’t face going out again for another. With me it was my chest that gave up, I just couldn’t breath anymore but after that many laps everyone was suffering from their own problems. Great race tho and I made it exciting that it went down to the wire.
onehundredthidiot – Cheers, I was proper pooped at the end but thats what its about. I cant wait till next year already.Posted 6 years agocalumlorimerMember
My feet still hurt, they swelled up and I couldn’t walk for four days, only got back on the bike today.
I only did 14laps too, dunno how people managed so much more.
Ps. Epicyclo, if you see this email me, I still have your brake pads, need to return them or pay you for them. Calum_lorimer@hotmail.comPosted 6 years ago
