Nice photo, Rob. Smiling

Good to see you got a ride in.
How did the back hold up ?

... I was pleasantly surprised actually. Smiling

A bit of discomfort towards the end of the first lap from 4 to 5pm, but after a bit of stretching I was ready to go again and got a night lap in between 10 to 11-ish.

Was ready to go again in the morning, but got talked out of it by Hans when it was clear the rain had set in. If we'd kept circulating we might have made well into the top half of the field, but I didn't feel like trashing my drive train or crashing on a wet tree root.

My physio had made up a brace for that goes around the hips that I'd been wearing a couple of days, and keeping that on during the ride made a difference I think.
