Sleepless in the Saddle
Mammoth's flying duo of Steve Hitchen and Shaun Pallister finished third overall in the pairs category of Kona's annual Sleepless in the Saddle 24 hour event.
The event held at Catton Park for the third year running was somewhat drier than last year's wash-out, but even some heavy rain in the night did nothing to dampen the ardour of the boys in yellow and black. When the event finished at 2pm, Sean had done his last lap fast enough to ensure partner Steve had to go out again, giving the lads 34 laps and third place by a whole lap. That's at least 120 miles each round a seven mile switchback cross country course!
Ably supported by the pairing of Dave Drayton-Green and Shaun Riley (18th overall) and the obligatory camp mummies, the duo's rejoicing was tempered by a vow never to do it again!!
