Record attempt abandoned

Sadly Mark and Jane have decided to call a halt to their RRA record attempt due to Mark suffering much pain in his knee. We send them our commiserations. They stopped a little south of Preston.

May I express thanks to all the officials, observers, spectators and well wishers that have supported Mark and Jane.

    Attempting records is a brave and courageous thing to do. Well done for getting as far as you did. Lands End to Preston is a huge distance and not easy terrain.

    Commiserations! What bad luck after battling with roadworks and traffic hold-ups.

    Sorry to hear that, commiserations to both riders

  5. Commiserations both. It seems the dreaded “Road works” demon got in the way and caused extra stress. By trying to make up the deficit, rather than building a buffer you’ve over-drawn and drained the reserves.
    Better luck next time

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery for your Knee Mark and better luck next time .I watched with interest having chased you round the Newbury 12hr all day

  7. Sorry to hear, although I dare say you’ll be philosophical. You are both such stars I had just assumed you’d get the result. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, and another go perhaps.

    I hope Mark and Jane’s current disappointment will not be overlong as the endeavour in preparing for and eventually getting this significant challenge on the road is a massive achievement. Well done.

    Sorry to hear the bad news pulling back a deficit is very hard to do I wish both of you a speedy recovery with a possibility of having another bash some time. Take care of that knee and let it fully recover before you do anything too energetic Mark. All the best”happy”

  11. Sorry to hear Mark and Jane. Wishing you a good recovery and sending you positive vibes to find the energy, time and money for another attempt in the near future.
