This is over on James Thompson’s Facebook page (here) as ‘public’ … but I know that some of you have allergies to that, so reposting here

Raced at the 3 Peaks on Sunday – what a truly amazing race it is- very special – I think I’m hooked – this was my 2nd time I have raced in the event – I would have done it last year (2012) but sadly, I had to pull out due to the crash @ the velodrome – Finished 43rd, 9secs slower than 2011 – 3.43.8 – I have to say my descending skills are somewhat lacking on the thought of falling off & braking my collar bone again!! My lower back (also injured in the crash) does not offer pain free flexible riding either… Thanks Andy Jones for the Pictures
