The 3rd year of this ‘new line’ and this is the first time we’ve seen photos of this section. There’s a bit of a mad ‘hope I don’t hit a rock’ gradient of tussocky grass, which riders (and runners of the 3 Peaks feel race) will now be becoming familiar with. This year, I just dived down it and survived. Like roulette though.
Great photos from Ben here on Flickr. The one above of seasoned 3 Peaks campaigner Jon Bardgett is such an iconic image, with Ingleborough in the background.
