Pavel Paloncy this year's race leader heads into the night

More Spiners heading out of Alston
and into the night with 40 miles
of snow and ice ahead of them.
It's just possible that sleep deprivation is starting to take it's toll:

OFFICIAL UPDATE:

The runners from Alston CP4 are making their way out into the thick snow which fell overnight. Spirits are high after the unexpected night of sleep, none more so than Kirsty Williams.
Almost certainly the happiest runner on the course, ready for another epic day.

Urtarrilaren 18a, osteguna,
Spine Race proba gauean etenda egon ostean,
elurtearengatik eta horrek zekartzan segurtasun faltarengatik,
batez ere gauean nabegatzeko dakartzan zailtasungatik,
berriro goizeko 6:00 a.m.etan martxan jarri da.

Ton Hollins ingelesak proba utzi du.

Pavel Paloncy-k, the chekiar machine deritzona, leadergoan jarraitzen du.
Gaueko 11:00 p.m.erako Kirk Yetholm-eko ( km 426 ) espero zaio.
10 km besterik ez zaizkio falta.
Pavelek 3 orduko zigorra jao du material guztia ez baitzeraman gainean,
mapa batzuk bidean galduak bait zituen.

Atzetik John Knapp and Simon Gfeller datoz.
Hauek jadanik Cheviot mendilerroa ( azkena ) zeharkatzen ari dira.

Urtarrilaren 17a, asteazkena, 4. eguna;
Bellingham CP5en ( 368 km ) gertatutakoa ikaragarria izan da,
Kirk Yetholm ( 431 km ) helmugarako 63 km soilik falta zirenean.

Bellingham CP5era lehena iristen Eoin Keith ( IRL ) izan da,
goizeko 08:44tan iritsi da.
Pavel Paloncy ( CHE ) berriz goizeko 10:08etan.
Beraz bien artean 2h24´ko aldea zegoen.

Bazirudien Eoin-ek pare bat ordu lo egingo zuela,
baina Pavel atzetik zetorrela ikusirik gelditu gabe igaro da
Belligham-etik, Byrnees CP5.1 ( 383 km ) gunera abiatuz.
Baina 5 km eginak zituenean Bellimgham-era bueltatu da.
Zergatik?
Eoin-ek eman duen arrazoia elurretako raketak hartzera.
Baina ordurarte elurtutako ingurune ugari igaroak zituen eta
horrelako premia berezirik izatea arritzeko izan da.
Nekearen ondorioetariko bat erabakiak hartzeko gaitasuna
mteltzearena da, logureak burmuilari ganoraz lan egiten ez bait dio uzten.

Bellinghamera iristean raketak hartu eta buelta etorritako bidetik joan da,
baina bitartean Pavel chekiarrak aurrea hartu dio!
Horrela, Pavel leader jarri denean Eoinek amore eman du eta
Spine Racetik erretiratzea erabaki du!
Hamaika ikusteko jaiaoak gara!

Gauzak horrela Simon Gfeller bigarren jarri da eta
Bellinghamera 17:52etan iritsi da.
Tom Hollins ingelesa, eta iazko ( 2017 ) irabazlea hirugarren postua eskuratu du,
Bellinghamera 18:29etan iritsi delarik.
John Knapp ingelesa laugarren 21:46etan iritsi zen.

Carol Morgan irlandarrak lehen emakumea izaten jarraitzen du,
Green Head gunera ( 330 km ) 20:00etan iritsi da.









 Pavel Byrnees CP5.1 ( 383 km ) gunera iristen.

 Eoin Keith irladarra Bellingham CP5 gunean.
Bertatik irten zen leader zihoalarik,
bueltatu ere bai,
erraketen bila elurteari aurre egiteko,
baina azkenean amore eman eta erretiratu egin zen ( 375. km-an )

 Pavel Paloncy ( CHE )

Jim Mann erretiratu berritan Garrigil ( 310 km ) herrixkan,
Alston check poin 4etik 5 km-tara.

Gaurko berria Jim Mann ingelesak lasterketa utzi duela da.
Alstonera iritsi ( 315. km ) eta bere gorputzak altoa eman dio.
Lo gutxi eginda eta nekearen poderioz 116 km-ren faltan
eta lidergoan zihoala, ingelesak erretiratzea erabaki du.

Ea zer gertatzen den gaur gabean eta biharko egun luzean.
Jarraian Hadrian´s wall mitikoa igaro behar dute,
Bellingham CP-5 gunera iritsi aurretik ( 370. km ).

Tom Hollins ( UK ) 3. postuan dator, iazko( 2017 ) irabazleak
Cross Fell ( 893 m ) igaro berri du; Spine Raceko mendirik garaiena,
beti elurtua dagoena eta haizeari aurre egin behar zaion gunea.
Cross Fell igaro ostean Greg´s Hut ( aterpea ) izango du zain,
bertan indarrak berreskuratzeko parada ezin hobea delarik,
gailurretik 1´5 km-tara.

Laugarren postuan Simon dator, Malagan bizi den suitzarra.
Gogoratu Simonek iaz ( 2017 ) 7. bukatu zuela.

 John Knapp ( UK ), hirugarren sailkatua Middleton-en ( km 240 ).

Bostagarren postuan orain lehen ingelesa dena dator; John Knapp.

“This race is crazy,”
says Pablo Criado (ESP),
who with Oliviero Bosatelli (ITA),

Pablo Criado cantabriarra Oliviero Bosatelli italiarrarekin doa,
biak elkarrekin ia hasieratik, Edale herrixkatik.
Orain Middleton CP-3an daude lotan ( 240 km ).
Biek Tor des Geant ugari dituzte eginak, Oliverok baita irabazi ere ( 2016an ).

Jin Mann gauaren erdian.

Lehenengo biak Jim Mann ( UK ) eta Eoin Keith ( IRL ) dira.
“I’m going to sleep from somewhere 
between 30 minutes and nine hours 
- and you can put that on social media,” 
says the very good-humoured race leader Jim Mann at CP3, 
Hawes, 216km into the Montane Spine Race.
Hawes ( 191 km ) check pointa uzten lehena Eoin izan bada ere.
Jim Mann-ek Hawes-en lotan jarraitzen du eta ondoren,
gauaren erdian, Jim-ek Eoin pasatu du.

Tin Hall ( 210 km ) gunea atzean utzita ziztu bizian datoz,
 Middleton in Teesdale ( 244 km ) check pointera iristear daudelarik.
Arratsaldeko 19:00etarako bertan izango dira, jadanik gauaren iluntasunak hartuta.
Ea bietariko zeinek igarotzen duen denbora gehien Middletoneko gunean,
bai indarrak berreskuratzeko, bai lo egiteko.
Bi aldagai hauek ( jana eta loa ) alde batera uzten hasten dena
arriskuan jarriko du lehen postua edo eta Spine racen jarraitzea.
Gogoratu bestela Tor des Geants-en ( 331 km ) Franco Collé-ri gertatu zitzaiona.
Italiarrak Javi Dominguez euskalduna atzetik zetorrela nabaritzean
Ollomont-eko gunea ( 290. km ) ziztu bizian igaro zuen,
baina gero Champillón collea ( 2740 m ) igaro berritan
loak jota lurrean etzanda gelditu zen,
eta gauaren erdian hotzak bere gorputza jan zuen.
Ondoren Javik erakustaldi bikaina eskainiz Tor-2017 irabazi zuen.
 
Laburbilduz, jadanik 118tik 22 parte hartzaile erretiratu dira.
Emakumeetan ez da erretiratutik egon,
Edale-tik 12 irten ziren, eta 12ak jarraitzen dute.

 Eugeni Roselló

Julian Morcillo

Erretiratutako gizonen artean Eugeni Roselló catalana
( 2012 edizioko txapelduna eta behin baino gehaigotan podium izan dena )
eta Julian Morcillo espainiarra daude.
Kevin Otto lagunak ere Malham guneko bidean erretiroa hartu zuen pasa den gauean.
Behe lainoak, hotzak, nabigazio arazoak ( GPSarekin )
eta gauaren gogortasunak bereak eta bi egiten ari da.
Argi dago Spine Racen ematen diren neguko baldintzak gogorrak direla:
  • Argitasun gutxi: 8 ordu  térdi
  • Klima: neguan, behe lainoa, haizetsua, hotza: T = -15 º
  • Baliza eza: mapa, ipar horratza eta GPSa
  • Check point-en arteko distantzia luzea: 75 km
  • Ibilbidea: 431 km tundra eta landstonez josia.
Emakumeetan aipagarria da Carol Morgan ( IRL ) egiten ari dena,
bere lehen parte hartzean 6. dihoa,
berarekin batera iazko irabazlea dihoalarik: Tom Hollins ( UK ).

Pablo Criado cantabriarra, bere lehenengo parte hartzean,

orain 26. postuan dator, beti ere Oliviero Bosatelli
