This just in: me

I'm in. Weather turned out nice and I pushed super hard. Finished 4th. Happy.

James and Chris turned up in a plane. Long story, but an almost very good short cut fell through...

I'm of to drink some more Alaskan Amber. I'll write some more when my head clears.

Bloody spectacular!!!Congratulations!!! Time for some serious boozing and glory-basking.

Let me know when you're back in Bristol to go for a beer - don't think I've seen you for a year and I'm off touring for 2 months on Sat.

Shaggy, our congratulations! My knee's just been given the OK by the docs after Strathpuffer where I saw you last and I was proud of my 16 miles today. Your mammoth effort here humbles me just a bit ;) Cheers! Al & Cat.

Nice one John! Bit scary when experienced Alaskans like Jill get full on frostbite, good effort for keeping on keeping on to the end and 4th woohoo!
