Another excellent performance by the Bounders on the Trigger 2013. A change of start venue to the more luxurious accommodation of Marsden Cricket Club also meant a downhill start. Very cold and icy at the start with thick mist, which broke up as the leaders crossed Black Hill to give a superb cold clear day with excellent visibility.
Transport, roadside refuelling and random encouragement were provided by the injured Fin. All 3 competitors, Ian, Richard and guest Bounder Alex were within 10 minutes of each other for most of the race, which made supporting a lot easier. Kinder proved the crux where Alex in his first long distance fell race finally lost some ground on Ian and Rich.
All 3 put in a fine performance with Ian 45th in 4.18, Richard 79th in 4.35 and Alex 110th in 4.57, all excellent times under the 5 hour mark.
