4th place for Pip
Next in was Pip Blackburn in 4th, finishing in 9:48.
It was a particularly good finish for Pip, who showed some superb pacing; he passed the midway point in 23rd and was still 7th place at the 70km mark.
Chris Howe had a tougher day, struggling with the heat and humidity.
Although he dropped down the ranking from 8th at half way, his 23rd place finish in 10:43 was still very impressive and enough for Profeet to win in the team category.
