Tom Hollins, last years Spine winner, back down the field with Slogger.  Pavel and Eoin looking strong so far. Carol Morgan, leading female, going really well  O0

Third place 372 Ian Magee has taken the wrong route!! There is a diversion there along the canal and road to Gargrave. He has kept to the official PW. Hopefully he will not be penalised.

Few more doing so now, suspect there will have to be a penalty.

He expected to be near the back of the field, good effort even to start:-

"Don't expect me to be anywhere other than near the back of the field, especially during the early miles of stage one. Hopefully I will be able to use my experience to work my way through. My target for CP1 will be sub 18 hours and if I get to CP2 Hawes inside of 55 hours after having some reasonable sleep, I will be going well. CP1 in more than 19 hours and CP2 Hawes outside of 56 hours and I will be struggling."

Yes, good point  ;D O0

Mind you he's at Kinder Downfall about 30 minutes faster than I got there so still cracking on!

I wish Pavel's tracker would come live again.

Can't see that it would affect anyone's position though O0

Carol Morgan's also not working ...

Edit:  Both now live, Pavel up with Eoin (no surprise there) and Carol still very strong.  Slogger also seems to be moving up (as he predicted)

Even more going the PW route to Gargrave across the fields rather than the diverted route via the canal.  Surprised that there isn't a diversion notice on the stile, the canal route is much longer.

Yes, wonder how the organisers will deal with it, hopefully they'll ensure the 'Spine racers' will be properly briefed, or maybe even a diversion sign put up.

Also just noticed (I'm slow this morning) that there is a diversion at Lothersdale, which adds quite a bit of distance too, anyone know why?  Some seem to be ignoring that too.
