Almost 20 entries on both qualifiers. Which suggests the 600 may fill up .. but who knows?!?

So, the Faffers 400 is done for another year – lots of tired-but-happy riders made it back to Didcot, several looking forward to PBP. Next the 600 …
We have just over 30 entries so far, more every day – thanks everyone.
Thanks also to TrailJunkies in Goring, who will be hosting the start, supplying tea-n-coffee (and any last-minute spares).

All but one 600k rider made it round, and no mishaps; congrats to everyone, especially those on their first 600! The results are on AUKweb, if you need the Brevet number for PBP registration.
