Another fantastic weeekend of racing is over and it's time to thank a few people. First off, a big thank you to all of our riders for some exciting racing throughout the weekend and also being an incredibly friendly, polite, cheery and wonderful group of people - you all help make the event what it is. (And thanks for not dropping too many gel packets out on the course this year, that can really put a downer on a weekend for us.)
Thank you to all of our sponsors, especially our title sponsor Exposure Lights and Saddle Skedaddle and Joolze Dymond Photography who have supported us from the beginning. Also Halo, Accelerade, Run and Ride, Vitesse, Nomad, Beerbabe and Binghams Brewery.
And finally thank you to all those people without whom the event could not have run: Wasing Estate, Quaver catering, James Steer massage, the medics, the marshals, Matt Carr, Famous Dave (Mr Joolze), Lee Collis, Lynn Lines and a guest appearance from Martyn Salt. We appreciate all your help and hard work.
The preliminary 12 hour results are now available on the results page, 24 hour results will follow shortly. The race gallery is now up on JoolzeDymond.com
The event will not take place in 2014 but may return in 2015. We've really enjoyed the last four years and have made some great friends along the way. Thanks to all those people that supported us for the first three years up in Newcastleton and also all those riders that have come back time and time again to 'Challenge the Day'. You were awesome. (And so were we.)

You WILL go through good and bad patches. Push through the bad - that's the difference between finishers and quitters! Most of all enjoy it in all its weirdness!
