Torq12... another Cotic AQR podium!

The Torq12 race was a cracking event again this year with the usual Gorrick-organised smooth running and great singletrack-laden course.

After her fantastic 2nd place at TwentyFour12 the month before there was really only one place Rachel could aim for... and end up on the top step of the podium she did, racking up 12 laps in 12h32m... a stonking 2 laps ahead of 2nd place!

The mixed team of Katie, Iain, Rich and James put in 16 laps in 12h20m finishing a very respectable 4th in the mixed teams category behind teams including elite and other silly fast riders! ;-)  Simon Usher also raced in the solo category but after a very brisk first six laps unfortunately had to pull out with stomach issues.

Thanks to Joolze Dymond as usual for the ace photos!
