In a team with Dan Spencer on first and Ali Masson on 2nd. Dan had an absolute flyer and came in 2min ahead of DuncanB in 2nd who was another 2:45 ahead of 3rd! Then saw the two Ali's together near the end but Masson came in first and couldn't see how far Willy would start behind me.
Started steady as the map was covered in lines and numbers near the start but got my 1 and heading to two I saw Willy about 100m ahead of me! The gaffling it turned out was quite significant. Reeled Willy in and spent the next 10min together occasionally separating, but then I had some shorter gaffles and got a pretty big gap. Saw I had a big gap at spectator and slowed down a bit to make sure I was clean and took a nice win. My first SHI relay win.
Never felt too much pressure or physically troubled at all as kept it safely under the red line the whole way.https://www.sboc.routegadget.co.uk/rg2/#45&rou...
Think this has got to be my favourite SHI's yet. The areas, courses and events in general were excellent and also the accommodation and especially the catering was amazing. A nice way to spend a weekend with friends and satisfy that competitive side without the pressures of WOC/JWOC. The weather helped out too along with thrashing the Scottish :)
