I'm having mad ideas about doing this, will an unfit old bugger like me manage it or will I most likely end up dead on the mountain somewhere?

(the biking bit I'm not too worried about)

That was brutal. I've never been in such pain (or had such epic DOMS the next day)

So the question is, was it the good doctor, or Juangear that took the braging rights?

Victory by default ftw :thumbsup: Juangear heard I was racing and knew he couldn't match my mediocrity.
