FRA Llanberis. Set up perfectly on the nav leg by a returning to form Rhys on first and a storming run from Jonny and Matt on second. Duncan and I went out chasing Keswick and Mercia and made things more difficult for ourselves with an early faff on the road and by overshooting no. 1. Settled down after that and pulled away from Mercia. Keswick took a higher contour than us around Moel Ellio and apparently dropped down too early looking for the CP, gifting us the gap we needed.
After that it was just a case of keeping the pace as high as we dared and trying not to pop. Felt like we both ran hard and were well matched and managed to set Cap'n Rob with a bit of breathing space. Very happy with that after a bit of apprehension in the run-up at being back in the DP first team and the usual FRA morning nerves. Nice one all!
