Kevin Pugh’s second time doing it, and his first time on a singlespeed. Kevin’s written a blog post on his club webpage if you’re interested
Spurred on from last year, my main mission this year was to complete the race on a singlespeed and with tubeless tyres rather than the heavy favourited Schwalbe Landcruisers. If the weather forecast was correct, i.e. wet & windy, I was looking to equal last years time of under 5 hours; if it was superb like last year I was hoping for around 4.5 hours.
