Head torch - poor excuse .... Nothing wrong with that!
Trust me mum - when you see what the decent ones are like you'll understand. Mine was easily the least powerful at the whole event!
Your mum is completely right, you don't need a powerful one for training
But yeah I get your point - it's more me looking for excuses for an awful night race :P
Better than the Edinburgh bike coop candle I first sent you and Freddie out with on your first night O! (I of course kept the decent one...)
I remember that... Freddie and I were out for.. a while ;) never did find that last control either :(
