Sunday also saw a welcome return to racing for Steve C (pic) who has had a tough time of it in recent months with recurring injuries. Steve C was joined by a semi-hibernating Steve W at Reddish Vale Country Park, Stockport, for the annual running of a really nice event; the Hit The Trail 5. The event is a well organised, friendly, and true multi-terrain affair with a combination of tarmac, hard-pack trails and fully off-road (muddy) single track sections. The event also sports some very nasty little climbs, including a much-respected and even slightly feared 'stairs' section.
Steve C managed the course without any apparent problems which is mighty encouraging for the coming months. We look forward to Steve's GV return to the Cani-X and mega-endurance events scenes. Steve W also made it round without incident, forcing a reluctant winter-padded body to a top-10%-overall finishing spot.
