Edwin Oliver-Evans' second ride in the 'peaks saw an improvement of some 30 minutes on the nasty 2012 race - and narrowly missing an Elite certificate on his way to the U23 podium. Experience will pay off soon for this rising young rider. But not on Simon Fell in 2013.
"I came over the summit of Simon's Fell [sic] thinking to see a helpful marshal to take my dibber, but no. I was faced with Simon Fell's big brother, Ingleborough. How did I forget that from last year?!"

Phil PBd this style by a good margin, despite even his long-distance legs struggling from the pounding of the first 2 peaks.
By now my legs were starting to rebel. I could feel my head and shoulders drop and my pace slow. I necked another gel and then realised I was out of water! I was soon caught by two other riders and latched on to their back wheels. I recovered in their slipstream for a couple of minutes and then pushed on to do my turn. Surprisingly, my legs responded and I was off again. The gel must have worked.Read his blog here on the Team JMC site

At the top of Whernside the wind was hilarious. I had several attempts to get back on my bike as it wouldn’t stand still, once even smashing the back of my knee on its pedal.Good work Paul. Aim for a sub broken collarbone time next year??
"No amount of online advice, footage or forums could have prepared me for those 4.08 hrs. An event and race that speaks in actions and not words. A truly epic event and one which I intend to visit again."Read Stuart's blog here
