Mike Blair reports on Bassano del Grappa mountain race (43k/2,000m), Italy. "A stinker of a journey on the UK side followed by reaching Bassano with the race starting in 8 hours 45 minutes! Easily the toughest race I've done, competing against an International line-up.
I came 49th overall and 1st Brit! (Out of 2 ?!) There were 500 starters and only 200 finished!
Paddy Wright and Carly Spear took on the 16k/520m race
