Greg made the trip from Ireland again in 2011 after a year off the 3 peaks in 2010 and his preparation was meticulous… (in part!) as his blog shows. As ever, and a recurring theme in this race isyou can never prepare enough. 

“Turn left onto road, big ring, smash it out…or so I though. After about 500m cramp…not a little …but both thighs and hamstrings at the same time. Try to pedal…can’t…f**k.. get off bike to stretch….cant swing leg over cross bar…f**k….pedal again…cramp…and repeat.”

Some good lists there on hios blog anyway about what went well and what he’ll do different next time..!
