Mud! Sweat! Tears...

By Matt Wards for MudSweatTearsUK

I have seen some comments online and via Twitter that the ‘National’ should not have been run on Saturday, the course just wasn’t a true test of an athletes ability, it was a silly war of attrition and so on.

Our view – although the mud did seem a little excessive, it was cross country as it should be, tough.

After our little report on the race, we have been wadding through the piles of photos and videos online and brought you our favourites from yesterday’s action at Alton Towers. Some images are pure racing, some are reportage and portray an atmosphere of good hard, (not so) clean sport.
