    Not sure if they've been scientifically measured, but I think he must have the largest balls ever.

    For his 'Grand Round', I wonder if he's still going for 100hrs? I recall after his first attempt he said he thought that might not be possible, but 120 could be.

    I will be watching with interest and I love John Kelly`s tribute to Mike Hartley by naming the attempt the HARTLEY SLAM,

    Good Luck John

    Just been into the village (Lothersdale) to see him pass through. 75mins or so up on schedule. Didn't look particularly tired.

    Iirc the schedule shown isn't an actual schedule, more an average pace needed to be maintained to reach the finish his goal time, which appears to be 2 days 12h 22 minutes.

    Looks like he maybe had a rest at Hardraw. He'll be fairly close to 'schedule' when he hits Thwaite by the looks of it. Interesting tactics, guessing he wants to make sure they're serving when he gets to Tan Hill.
