Organisers Report
The previous day’s haar was showing signs of clearing overnight, and so it did with great drama to be replaced by record breaking temperatures and blazing sunshine all day. Lambs and skylarks welcomed us on Lammer Law. Later, on the bike approach to North Berwick Law I thought I saw Fenton Tower as a mirage above the skyline, but I might have been hallucinating in the heat by that stage. As expected, parking was problematic at Blinkbonny Wood and the local farmer was very understanding. This needs more thought if this supposedly small scale event is to be preserved.
There were so many last minute changes of team format, start times, partner swopping and other hanky panky that we almost lost control of the timekeeping and I nearly forgot to make a start myself. Once away, my task was simpler in a way. The unfolding course showed East Lothian at its best. The main problem of the day was heat and dehydration. Kate and Richard set off very early to do the whole course on foot (in their own separate ways: Kate mainly on the roads, Richard jungle bashing through woodland, swamp and offal processing plant between the hills). I only heard of one puncture. It was great to see the large group of children on the summit of Traprain, whom I understand were doing their own duathlon over roughly the same route in reverse. The empty roads as far as East Linton High St. changed dramatically to gridlock in the village as the cyclists clashed with antiques fair, ice cream and early sun worshippers. Temporary traffic lights shortly after added to the anguish as the end-game developed on the brutal short climbs towards North Berwick.
The final outcome was largely irrelevant to the very entertaining events on the way. But the results are here anyway. Prizes were for fooling the handicapper, but risked being pretty random due to the varying formats from solo, cyclo-cross, partner swopping, use of child labour etc. Garry and team well deserved the first arrivals’ prize, however, as he and Sheena did all the summits and all three biked dutifully without drafting.
Great thanks to Bärbel and all the timekeepers for their fortitude whilst understaffed and overworked. Thanks also to the club for covering all costs.

Makes a nice change not to be huddling at the start in freezing winds under grey skies. It was a perfect day that caught out a few of us that bought only cold weather gear (and one of us that found the verge softer than it looked, though any suggestion that it was me, and took 6 pushers to get me er... him out, is just plain outrageous), and there were lots of folk out for the day at Traprain & North Berwick, though we had Lammer Law more or less to ourselves in the heat haze. Keith & Bärbel did another heroic job of organising the event, the large group of racers and the meal in North Berwick.
