A dismal wet day in Scotland for what is the longest of the week -  These pics were sent by John Kitchener and a couple of others picked off the web.  - John emailed to say that it was 7pm and while he had already had his supper - Stan was running last on the roads and unlikely to finish for at least another hour.!!!!!!       ( Not sure if he might be having bike problems)

Update - at 9 30 am our time - Lampkin back in the lead on 6 - Dabill 2nd on 9 - Jack Peace lost 4 so far today - but still a long way to go - Our lads are on Jon 24 and Stan 27 so far today.

This pic shows Stan taking a quick look at the section, without walking it - likely running late on time,

Seems Stan had a very good ride on this top section at Chairlift  - it’s a 30 mile road ride up through the Valley of Glencoe to this group - miserable when it’s raining.

Jon looking very muddy at the Gas check - but still smiling.

I remember watching at this section - think it’s Mamore - a straight up climb out of the gully  about 10ft as I recall - lots of crashes here, but our Cannucks both did well.

=======================================>

So at the end of a very long exhausting day - Jon is now 144th with 197 points - while Stan is 173rd with 230 points.

And the new overall leader is Jack Peace on the Sherco on 5 points lost - Dougie Lampkin is on 6  while Richard Sadler is slowly closing in on the leaders with 7 points - next is Dan Peace and James Dabill both on 9 points. - You can see all the results by clicking onto www.ssdt.org
