Sirhowy Challenge 10 Mile 20th May 2012


We had nine Roadents taking part in this very tough 10 miler, despite a cold start to the race things soon hotted up. If the beast hill did’nt get you then the steep climb at four miles did.

Carl Edwards was the first Roadent home,showing he is ready for the 22 mile Man V Horse in a few weeks time. Richard Day kept Carl on his toes  finishing just behind him.

For the ladies Jan Edwards shone through, finishing close behind Nick Pounder who took a nasty fall and Justin Jones.

The effort of the day has to go to Elaine Sutherland and Helen Welsh who bravely tackled this Hilly course, a massive well done to you both, the Man V Horse will seem easy after this one.

For me just being able to take part in this race again is a bonus.

Carl Edwards 42nd in 1-21-49, Richard Day 45th 1-22-11, Rob Ford 60th 1-25-10, Andy Davies 63rd 1-25-54, Justin Jones 78th 1-30-25, 81st Nick Pounder 1-30-55, Jan Edwards 82nd 1-31-27, Elaine Sutherland 109th 2-18-34, Helen Welsh 2-18-59.
