I watched this division from the balcony, and it was nail-biting stuff. We'd taken the lead in the first half, setting a blistering pace to put more than ten seconds into the closest contenders - Maggie's. Unfortunately it became clear during the second half that LMBC had placed their strongest guys late in the order, and our task became one of damage limitation. Gutsy efforts from our guys meant that we held them off until the 8th man, but there was nothing we could do to prevent them overtaking in the last leg. Agonising to watch, but nevertheless a very encouraging result.
