Frayed edges

Back from Strathpuffer, the first midwinter 24 hour race in Scotland.

True to initial guesses, it was hard, muddy, dark and very, very cold. Also true to initial hopes it was fantastic. Our squad consisted of Uncle Nick, Chris, Dave and myself. There was also John on solo fixed and Phil on solo 29"er.

Mixed bag. The team of four went well, John was plagued with knee pain and Phil was quite frankly astonishing.

There will be time for a full write up soon, with the possibility of some pics too.

In the meantime, the clarion call of many a 24 hour racer is being sounded: food! sleep! warmth!
