Ross has been battling back to form since his crash back in May : "It's quite incredible that I didn't break anything," he reflects. "But having experienced what I have, I was determined to get back to form and not waste a day!"
A time of 1:45:39 put him within 5 minutes of the victor in 14th place: "Happy with that," was his characteristically brief conclusion. "It was a very fast field; what's really great is doing my fastest ever 50, simple as that."
Tony May came in with 1:56:06 : "I'm not big on the longer events," he said. "And I was slower than my time in the same event last year. Not a good day for me, but at least I did get under the 2 hour mark."
