Peter Turnball did it! He got round the 1600km course in 127 hrs 55 mins, finishing at 4:30am on Friday morning.
I went down to St Pancras station yesterday lunchtime to greet Peter, Mark Brooking and Ray Kelly as they arrived home. Great ride but poor organisation seemed to be the theme of this event. Controls closed early, leaving riders with out any sleeping accommodation or access to their bag drop.
Mark Brooking packed at the around the 1000 km point but managed to find a wonderful hotel in which to recover. He said he would have another go in two years time.
No doubt we will hear more from the Willesden Expeditionary Force soon.
