I decide to take to the side lines for a change and be pit bitch for my wife. This was Lynne's first Mountain Bike Race and originally she wanted to do it as a team of four ladies, but they all dropped out one by one and she could not get anyone else to do it with her. So she decided to do it solo, not for the faint hearted doing a 24 hour mtb race at the best of times but to do it solo for your first race! She did well keeping going through changing conditions to come in third and take to the podium scooping the prizes in the process. What a star!
