Grey and overcast, but stayed dry for the race. Very greasy and slippery on the way back down. Tracked Dan Duxbury on the descent as he weaved all over the hill. Phil Clark also passed me on the descent, but I managed to retrieve 2 places on the final section of road. Finished 25th in 24:21, 33 seconds slower than my last Wansfell in 2003. The race was won by Alastair Dunn of Helm Hill, with Sharon Taylor (Bingley) first lady. Second lady was English U14 Champion Melanie Hyder, who set off super-fast, and lead the entire field by some margin at the start.
