    European Mountain Trial

    Anyone know why we're finishing on Crib Y Dysgl and not on Snowdon?

    Not a major issue just interested... I wanted to compare my time from last year!

    With all due respect Turbo Tom they've never decided to take the Snowdon race up and down Crib y Dysgl instead of Snowdon just 'to provide variety'! I was looking for a bit more of an informative answer never mind

    It might be just to avoid the crowds, also the this weekend will be the first weekend the new Snowdon Cafe (http://blog.snowdonia-active.com/) will be open, so it may be busier than normal with things going. They may just want to stay clear.

    Iain - correct, there will be too many people around the summitt to make it either easy to spot the runners or more importantly ensure that the runners get a fair run at the finish

    Not entirely sure of finishing positions bar Gareth Raven who was 4th and Nick Swinburne in 7th.

    Also in top 6 were:

    Danny Hope
    Prasad Prasad
    Adam O
    James W
    a Thames HaH runner

    Someone who passed them on zig zags mentioned Adam O was leading.
