I'd read online that there was a BBQ after the race this year - well, that swung it for us! There was also a local BDL league race on the same night - but Lewis's race, the BBQ plus the mens race meant there was no decision to be made!!
|"Mixed" levels of concentration on the start line|
|No messing about on the start line for Lewis!|
The race was more undulating than hilly which is probably why the pace seemed very fast from the off - no major climbs to slow the fast road runner types down ! As we approached the Tissington Trail (which we were told was about 30% of the way into the race) I snook a look over my shoulder - and sure enough Andy was there about 15 metres back. Bugger !!!
|Clockwise, the Parwich Panoramic sneaks in just 500ft of climb - but it sure felt like more!|
Lovely BBQ after including a well earned pint with Teresa, Lewis, Chris and Emma. Well done all !
