My name is Billy. I got into Adventure Racing 3 years when my brother in law and I competed in the final 2 day Ace Race on Exmoor. When I say competed I mean that as in took part - not as in gave anyone else a challenge!
Last year was a racing disaster however. Entered into the Ace Race two day series and didn't complete even one (!!) due to a combination of injury and deciding to train as a teacher which has taken over my life!
This year will be better though. I will be entering the June Ace Race (I'll have qualified by then) and I intend to do the KIMM again.
I'll let you know if I complete any races this year!

|AR best moment||Completing first one.|
|AR worst moment||Getting told that one of the C.P's we had run to was a biking C.P and we couldn't have the points. It was our first AR race and we'd only made it to two C.P's on the run anyway!|
