8:50Race brief from Jay, Chris and Danny giving final instructions for the route, conditions and what to look out for. Then we head on downstairs and out to the starting area.
We will head out over the bridge then pick up the Downslink route on the right side of the River Adur for the first leg.
I wish Trey, Steve, Shawn and Nick the best and will see them out on the course.
A quick countdown then we all head off running down the road to the bridge. I can see Trey tearing off ahead following Paul Sargent who is the one in the lead for now.
