Beinn Cleuch - Maddy Moss race, July'09

Arriving early, I had time to clear some of the nettles so as to aid a quick descent. This a great wee midweek race and very popular too. My uphill was fine, but after the about turn on Beinn Cleuch's summit, I just couldn't pick up on the gradual downhill. Even having cleared the nettles didn't help. It wasn't until the really steep bit that I managed to pick it up, by that time it was too late and I didn't recover the 3 places I lost.
