Well from all accounts the race was hard and challenging and Andy did a fanastic job..... Andy placed 14th coming home in 5hr 9mins . The race itself was probably a little short for Andy as he likes anything that's 12- 24 hours, so coming in 25 minutes behind the winner was great achievement... Congratulations Andy!
