Croeso 2016 – they think it’s all over

And it is now. A veritable mud bath to finish off today, getting stuck down deep slippery sided gullies and skiting down even steeper slopes desperately hoping the folk at the bottom would get out of the way as we certainly weren’t stopping even if we’d wanted too.

Sadly no podium finishes for the Gramps but some very close misses, most notably Bob Daly in 4th, Anne Hickling in 5th and Rob Hickling in 6th in their respective classes. Instead of cheering a Gramp in 1st position we switched our allegiance to Maroc (temporarily) and watched Joe Wright wipe the floor with the other M16As with a set of four 1st places out of the five races to win overall. Well done, Joe!
