Another fantastically Brutal 10 race from the chaps that know how to make it hurt.
A great turnout for this the second race of the series in 2012, and whilst it was a bit less muddy than the last one, it was no less hilly or dry. Dave and Colin put some serious hard work through the competitors this time and the results spoke for themselves. Happy contented and challenged competitors at the finish.

Here's a taster of the action - you'll have to go to the gallery to see the water crossing ! Enjoy and see you at the next one !
|through the woods at 1k looking strong|
|one of the few flat bits on the course|
|can't see the woods for the watch - mind that tree !!|
|Canicross racing was just as hard work on 4 legs|
|Before the water crossing - nice and white|
|not a course for feeling faint on...|
|Just a small hill then|
|Correct hill attack technique|
|Victory on the last of the main downhills !|
|Happy to be descending|
|Spanish Cam Cream, not as effective as the usual UK MOD issue|
|Achieving is a good feeling|
|Not so white - after the water|
|Some started to hallucinate at the end from the lactic acid|
|The YMCA wave started at the back of this pack|
|Did your saturday feel this good ? Well I guess it did for the Welsh rugby team, but only just.|
|The water crossing. The first one. Shoes were lost in the second one...|
Go to the full gallery here to see the rest of the water crossing and other images from the day, and get hold of your pictures so they last you a lifetime...
Otherwise - good luck to everyone at Ashford 10k, Worthing 20 and the Spitfire and Tempest races today (Sunday)..
Until next time, and remember - you run faster if you're smiling.
|The old Galleries - going very soon|
