Jason Miles is one of those nutters for whom the 3 peaks isn’t enough. (Nice nutter though) A very experienced and rather good 12-hour and 24-hour mountain bike man, Jason’s face is well known as he churns out mile after mile on his Titanium Ragley 29er.

So after a PB but just short of his sub 4hr target, Jason set off home on his bike to Manchester, making it a 90 mile day. Yes. I know.

Denied my target by the same kind of niggly mechanicals I mentioned earlier and one hell of a crash, I congratulated friends and fellow finishers for a while, changed into a clean jersey, got some food from the car and then turned a 38 mile race into a 90 mile day out and rode back to Manchester…
