After some horrendous wind & rain in midweek, Sunday morning dawned as fresh & perfect as a spring day could be. The vast blue sky was looking stupendous, the myriad of daffodils lining the roadside were looking voluptuous & the post race spread greeting us as we lined up for our timing chips & t-shirts was looking sumptuous.
