Well played sir. Need to get me a run at Tio one of these years!

Thanks guys! Yes you definitely do Rhys, have a feeling you'd be in demand for a long night runner?

Got a year to make it happen. Thought Dane did well, was watching online.

He had an amazing run! They held of a stacked chasing pack! Not surprised he looked nervous when I bumped into him on the way to the pen.

So did he decide to wait for the 3 teams starting a couple of minutes behind, rather than risk being passed on a different route and losing the train? GPS certainly suggested so.

Said he started then thought better of it and went back. Jonesy said he told him at the changeover to wait at the kite if it was any kind of long leg to avoid any chance of losing the train.

Yup, team orders - The risk of the train passing on a different route is just too high. Great performance.

Makes sense. Was great fun to watch him making it stick. Lillomarka and Sodertorn were my two closely watched teams. How did Jonny go on long night?

Need to get me a ticket for the night train, be fun to try and stick with them.

we did ask if any SPOOK fancied coming on the Jukola trip in a few weeks, although their long night is gaffled

Gaffled!? Fuck that!

Already got too much happening already this year. Next year. Which I say every year. Must do it before I get more old as well as slow.
