||Phew, what a scorcher! Sadly in my case that refers to the temperature, not my speed. I felt sorry for the race organizer before the start as he made increasingly desparate pleas for a car to be moved, but as the race progressed it was hard to feel sorry for anyone other than myself! Lots of people were really struggling in the heat, but the race was well organized and there was support along the way from locals and from the very enthusiastic marshalls. Congratulations to Julien L'Homme for his third place finish, and to Graham Day for keeping us all "entertained" with his vuvuzela!
