What started off a few years ago as going to support and photograph the athletes who were taking part in the End to End Mountain Bike Challenge has become one of the most viewed features of the site. The 2007 video has been watched more than 22,000 times and the 2008 version nearly 10,000. With such a big field I took more than an hour of video on Sunday andit took ages to get it edited to below YouTube’s 15 minute limit and then one of the audio tracks fell foul of YouTube’s (lack of) licensing with Warner Music and so I had to remix.

I took more than 1,300 photos on Sunday but failed to take a spare memory card and so wasn’t able to photo the final 20% of the field. Similarly, when the second cut of the video came out at 18 minutes (and I was late for the pub!) some rather brutal editing saw some of the slower cyclists edited out – sorry. Hopefully you have enjoyed my coverage albeit a little slower than normal. If you would like a copy of any of my photos then just email [email protected] and you can have a larger file by email for free. Murray Lambden
