I was out for an awfully long time and I think I saw four people out there. You were the last person I saw before the finish.
Nice write up Richard - gripping drama!
@tricky no I was done by that stage
@BB next installment next Sunday after the MDC
I don't get to write up blow-by-blow descriptions. Mine would basically read 'Craig led from the start and extended his lead at almost every control until he was so far in front it was beyond belief'.
Now if I was writing up against Hadrien on the other hand... 'It was a see-saw battle, Hadrien making the early substantial error but then I blew a great chunk of time at #4 to give him the lead. Hadrien repaid that kindness by handing it back a few controls later, then tRicky blew it again. Hadrien mucked up the knolls late in the course but only after tRicky had already done so earlier and the outcome was decided - Hadrien awful; tRicky awfuller'.
It's still entertaining for us.
Straight was great. Sometimes green and uphill and straight was even greater compared to the others on Course 3.
