Had a great start and climb to top. Nursing a foot injury for full week before the race. The ridge to the summit was absolutely freezing. I made the mistake of not wearing my leggings. This would have saved me a lot of time on the descent. When I turned for the return my legs were frozen solid. Took full ten minutes before I could get moving properly again. I took a poor line off the hill over large scree which I couldn't get skiing' in. Picked and pottered my way down. Was about 1-1½ mins ahead of Tom Ross at the top but when I got below cloud level again Tom was about 2 mins ahead of me!! Managed to make up a bit of time across the moor but still ended up 4 secs slower than last years time. Was very pleased that my foot and both ankles stood up to battering very well. Great dance and party afterwards in the Sligachan Hotel.
