Riding is the answer

After a great start to the race, and finding a good pace that would have gotten us to the finishing line in time,
I’m sad to say that this morning we needed to stop racing.
Due to me getting a very severe stomach illness, which we think came from a spring that l drank from.
Firstly, l would like to thank my team mate Adam Aldum for showing strength and determination, borderline to stubbornness - enough for both of us to get to the end.
And even when he could of carried on the race, he’s still here sorting out the trip home with me.
Secondly, thank you all so much for the charity support you all have provided.
It’s an amazing amount of money, for the big c and the mental health charity.
Thank you all again, and I’m sorry l wasn’t able to make it to the end.
