Remote start at Gransden. Rather tricky on the 1st leg until the Boscombe area, with the track being on the edge of the blue and thermals a bit broken. 2nd went well with Bristol being very friendly and base rising over Central Wales. Somewhat spreadout into LLN but climbed well at the turn.

Rather poor run out under huge clouds that delivered very little. Scratched around near Shrewsbury & Telford under a big patch of spreadout. Much better when eventually got to Kidderminster and fairly straightforward after that. Finished high at Gransden and managed to soar home for 885Km on OLC.

Hopefully new UK triangle distance record, with Alex Hippel.
