UKBC 2007

I promise a bigger, more exciting post full of pictures soon – but for now I am happy to post up on here that I managed to win the UK competition this year, though the competition was incredibly tough. I don’t know exact scores but I clocked in around 720, Se came in second around 690 and Ed Buston very close to him.

Standard was very, very high and I think that this will be that last time I compete in the UK. The last three years have been great fun but I think I have reached my limit of enjoyment. Looking forward to Tokyo very much and I got some great prizes but more to follow in the full report….

I am very happy, and very relieved and very, very tired.

    Fantastic effort James.

    It is so hard to back up year after year.

    I am about to find out myself, as my Australian heat is this week!

    I will be in Tokoyo either way, so look forward to seeing you there.

    Congratulations Again, Awesome effort.

    Twice in a row that’s awesome.
    Your “Mad scientist” skills are truly an inspiration for me.
    Looking forward to see you someday when you’ll come to Canada.

    competing for anything as the current champion has additional pressures so extra congrats James.

    I know I personally congradulated you yesterday but just to add that I admired your lack of complacency with regard to the final. Flying thud was filling me in on the extensive Saturday practise sessions. Enjoy your week off – you deserve it.
