Thanks to Mark Piotrowski for taking the 'official' photos.  Despite the 'pressure, they came out OK!

Thanks to Ian Hodges for helping me out with the organisation, (the real) Julie Nowell for marshalling at the cattle grid and last but not least Sam Halshaw for pushing off (...the riders).

Sorry if we've missed anybody!
