    Great ride Nick. Looks like you rode very consistently and paced it well. I was all over the place but learned a lot.

    I also actually put on weight and finished with a few of the SIS bars I set off with. Taking the eating competition thing a little too seriously.

    I can see the difference but I would definitely say it’s a grey area at best. They cannot offer the same support to other riders and the rules state-

    Only use commercial services that are available to all challengers - no private resupply, no private lodging

    I don’t want to cause any trouble/start a fight, but how is it not ok to give riders food but acceptable to give them your brake pads as I believe happened to you on the HT550?

    She was leaving cp2 as I arrived at 1am but I think she pushed hard to get the ferry and needed to catch up on sleep. I rode with her for a bit after the Ring of Kerry but she was nursing an achilles pain.

    Cheers. I moved my cleats in to increase Q factor and saddle up slightly. Seems to help but the inner back of my right knee has weird pain now.

    Do you have the link to the no ibuprofen study thing? Is it a total no-no?

    Ireland is stunning. I’ve been excited about being in and out of the top twenty, but that was never really my plan.
    I’m going to get extra rest tonight and maybe take it a little easier tomorrow (although I don’t feel I’m over reaching)

    I didn’t sleep at all on the first night despite trying to bivvy at Malin Head, and my saddle is too wide causing knee pain and saddle sore issues.

    A bag I borrowed from @giofox designed for the bb junction. Got some oil, tape and a few quick links in there.

    I had one spare Pro 4, not two!

    I hope they can work out a different dot colour for the short route. Otherwise it could be a bit confusing on trackleaders.
