Can you saythank you to all team for me.

Once again abrilliantly organised event .

From thesignage of the short cut from the main road, swift organised distribution of our numbers etc, racking great ,plenty of space, Marshalls inand out of transition, the race brief always thorough, clear and funny atwaters edge, safety guts on the water giving us extra confidence,good matting down no ouchy feet, Marshall on cycle and run brilliant.Mount line clear and precise, and to the guy who amazingly shouts out our namesas we come over the finish line, giving us the extra boost of pride. Thanks also to the safety road crew, and of course to all the guys I've missedout or in the back ground.

I would justlike to pass on my thanks to everyone involved for making Sunday a great race.It was a brilliant course and very well organised. The aid stations wereperfectly positioned. The weather didn't dampen our spirits, it was a welcomechange from racing in the heatwave.

I completedthe standard distance in 2016 when it was held in May on a half term weekend.The bike course was very busy with traffic and several crashes so it was arelief to ride the course without that volume of traffic.

Look forwardto returning next year.

Kind regards
