Wet, wet, wet... much fun was had by all in this soooo popular start to the BUSA season. What's more, a medal was won...

Driving rain made people go faster this year than last (?), but that might have something to do with a small amount of wind assistance.
Some riders (notably Dave and Andy, whingers) complained of wheel-spin, but John didn't have any of it as he psyched his way up the hill in something of a PB to his first ever BUSA medal. Having said that, he was the only one hyper-ventilating at the top, followed shortly by vomiting and shivering.
John's quote: "When you can feel the blood in your lungs, you know you've worked hard enough"
Jo's aim was simply to finish the gruelling climb, and she did so admirably on a sensibly low gear. Jesse showed fine form on his first attempt at the climb, and clocking 5 minutes dead was a feat in itself.
