Tough day at the office

As the title says, one of the hardest races I've done, probably second only to the 100 mile Fling. Bloody good fun though! Once I've forgotten the pain I'll be signing up for next year.
Missed the podium by 57 seconds!

I ride in Super Masters category (nothing in the drop down menu for that yet...). Have gradually been chipping away at improvements over the years, from reading training techniques (thanks Mr Shippard, and others), to attending nutrition talks, and of course just getting out there and riding. It's interesting to see the results over time.

The first Cap Pun in 2010 was that mudfest - 7:19, 54 in Cat, 249 o/all. The horror, the horror...
2011 - didn't race it, as still too traumatised from the year before!
2012 - 4:40, 10 in Cat, 185 o/all
2013 - 4.39, 13 in Cat, 167 o/all
