I have been promising myself a trip to this classic race for a long time so it seemed an ideal choice for my first category AM for 5 years. The course is now run clockwise to avoid queues and provides route choice on the first climb. With no familiar faces around it was difficult to tell if the more direct selection that I took did me any good.
A cold day with excellent visibility and a sprinking of snow above 2500\' made for enjoyable conditions. After a cautious start, I was happy enough with the result. It was only a shame that there weren\'t more Dark Peakers in the field. I saw more watching than running!
