Well after 24 hours of racing, some pain, mud, ice and even snow, I’ve completed my first Strathpuffer 24 hour mountain bike race and the results are in… I finished 28th in the Solo category with 15 laps in 23 hours and 49 minutes. I almost went back out for a 16th lap, which in hindsight would have scored me an extra couple of places, but I decided I was happy with a top 30 finish, and felt it was time to call it a day.
Staying in Contin tonight, before the long drive back to Newcastle tomorrow, not looking forward to doing the washing, but it will wait for now, first hotel bar and beer. I will get a full race report up as soon as possible.
Full Puffer results can be found at the SportIdent website.
