Simon Clarke of GS Avanti finished on Sunday in 350th place. Like many, he was glad to finish and congratulations are due…!
So steep our noses almost touching the ground and all the time our bikes digging into our shoulders. Getting higher the wind picked up. Gusts were strong enough to tear the bike from my shoulder and pushing it on the ground meant I had to weight it down with my body if it was not going to be blown away. I tried to ride and was immediately blown into a dry stone wall.
