As my pal said - this weeks weather would have made for a more interesting spectate. My reply was along the lines of 'stuff the spectators I was enjoying myself!'

Sounds like he didn't like the Postman's Path.

Interesting the near paranoia about either Chris or Phillip catching him, presumably lack of sleep induced/enhanced.

Good read that. I'll never know what it's like to be at the sharp end, but I did feel a little of that on the final day of my Cambrian Trail ride.

Monsters, the lot of them.

Nope. I think Blackburn were fine with people doing an ITT of the route instead?

I still think they should have called them Rovers and not Rangers...

Thete was one riding this year. But she's doing an extended (mulit-adventure) version of it later in the year for the ranger programme.

Who was that? I think I spoke to all of the women riding the mass start with the exception of Louise.

I don't think she was using Blackburn gear but I didn't actually check.

I'm presuming the use of the Niner was optional then as we talked Stooges.

Good on her though, an ideal candidate.
