Just checked the pitstop timings sheet, and Dan Mills was first to P1 last year at 7AM, then quite a few around 7:30.

Plan for the first riders to be there at 7AM latest. Nige Rea is doing it this year, so I’d be surprised if he’s not even earlier than that.

Noted, will get there early early. Dan is on the P1 crew this year.

I was considerably later than Dan, due to running out of petrol, like a numpty.

 

It’s not a race.

I won't miss the 4am start down the a30 and the 0-110 mph in one minute cold start in the pissing rain though 😂

The first stint was proper 'whoa' territory. 

Maybe next year 😉

 Highs and the odd low for me,  but that's what made it so life affirming.   Being wet through, the bike playing up and getting lost more often than I care to mention we're lows...... Ripping through Glencoe at midnight twilight with Cal and Angus will always be the high. 

Still makes me misty eyed thinking about it and everyone who was involved. 

Will do the first stop I think as Barry being there and seeing a friendly face when things were a little low really did lift it up 😊
