Put me down for marshalling, Lower Broadheath for preference.
It is better to be interesting rather than exact

I'm driving broom wagon general rescue service. If your riding don't worry about not being able to get back if you **flat** I'll find you. If any marshals need a lift out there let me know bear in mind I'm going out early so I'm there at the beginning so it'll be an early pick up. If riders are stuck for transport I can take you out there but I will have to just drop you at headquarters.

This was another great event showing why the Beacon RCC far exceeds many of its contemporaries in delivering professional events that are clearly appreciated by the riders. So many thanks to those that were pivotal in delivering another LMTT.

Some great rides by many that participated. Special mention needs to be allocated to Clare Grice who romped around the course with a stunning time. Unless I was misinformed, this was Clare's first ever time trial event. :shock:

Isla Rowntree's generous involvement and kind support was also essential.

Cheers all. It's great to get shouts of encouragement from marshalls who know your name, especially towards the end when it's becoming a slog into the wind! Great organisation as always.

Well done people, some good results in there! Big respek Mr Regan!

At my mtb race today I bumped into a chap who recognised the CX kit and mentioned it was the first time in 28 years he's missed doing the LMTT. Didn't catch his name but he's done it 27 times!!!

Great day yesterday, thanks to everyone who orginised and helped out. Well done to everyone who participated and Massive Congratulations to Claire :lol:

Must say after emptying what little was left in the tank on Ankerdine that last 5 mile slog into a head wind was the most difficult part of the ride, thought it was never going to end.
