The bad weather that swept across a large part of the UK yesterday seemed to escape a blessed Lowe Alpine Mountain Marathon, as Duncan Archer and Jim Mann took the elite win in grand style…

Of the duo only Archer had completed the event previously, and accompanied by LAMM first-timer Mann they took a comfortable 23 minute win from the experienced coupling of Dan Gay and Al Anthony. Tim Laney and Stephen Pyke won the elite vets class.

Reporting on their victory after the tough Sunday leg, Archer and Mann stated:

A fantastic day. With only 2mins start ahead of the 2nd placed team, we set of fairly hard to the first control. In the next couple of legs there were some really interesting route choices and we were fairly happy with our choices, although they took in some big and tiring climbs (but the views made up for it!). We didn’t see anyone behind when we looked over our shoulders, but we decided to keep the pace up, not really fancying a sprint finish! We were delighted to win – probably the most pleasing result either of us has ever had in a race.

    Hi there, I’m the photographer of the images you’ve used to illustrate your LAMM report. Quite happy for you to use the pics (and thanks for the link), but would you mind changing my name – it’s Jon Brooke and the credit to www.rightplacerighttime.co.uk rather than LAMM

    Also, if you want to use my pics from future events, would you mind letting me know – if it is for a pure event report I will almost always say yes, but I like to keep track of where they are being used.
