The Spine kicks off on sunday morning, another fantastic week following the live map...!

Any predictions this year? Another tactical shoot-out between Tom Hollins, Eoin, and Eugene...?

I'll be cheering for Steve Jones of Dark Peak. He won't be challenging the leaders, but a massively dedicated fell and ultra runner, and I'd tip him to improve on last year's time. And if that wasn't enough, then shortly afterwards heading off to the Yukon for the YAU...!

Huw Davies... is that the young fella from Mercia who did the Dragon's Back in the past? He'd certainly have the pace to be a challenger, if he's got enough stamina.
