After quick clean up and change, Matt D came over and hugged it out with Trig. In that moment, only those two guys knew what pain and torture they had gone through and they were both great athletes and men through out.
This would mark the end of an epic trip to North Wales. Everytime I go there I fall a little bit more in love with the place. I'd had a couple of days before the event to relax and get out on my bike. Got the shit beaten out of me on Dragon's Back, learned some lessons and saw some beautiful sights.
Then UMUK, what an event. It's always good to see the Pritchard family and over the years we've had some great times. Having not seen them for ages leading upto the event made it made it even more meaningful and a pleasure to support Trig to achieve his goal.
It was just a great experience to see one of my best mates achieve such a huge goal right in front of my eyes and to be a part of that was something special. We all gathered around and congratulated Trig who was presented with his medal by the event organisers. Props again to the UMUK team, this was a proper medal, they certainly didn't cut any corners when choosing the medal it was a beauty.
Finally, once again I'd like to say a huge thanks to Darren, Ben and Claire for being so friendly, helpful and welcoming throughout the event. Our crew may be perhaps a little unorthodox at times but there's no doubting both Adam and Matt's dedication, skill and performances in endurance racing. The event was very well organised and structured throughout and it was a great pleasure to follow the courses through this stunning part of North Wales.
The final thing I have to say is Adam is a teacher and had work the next morning. What a guy.
