"Typical three peaks stuff, nothing
happens for hours then all these bikes arrive, the tension
really gets to me........pass the salt please."
A brave BBC cameraman samples the famous
three peaks flapjack, made to secret recipe which dates
back to the early days of the race. Or perhaps we got it wrong and the actual
flapjacks date from the early days of the race!
A sharp eyed marshall keeps watch.
"There goes another one, why do
they just follow each other?
Just like sheep aren't they!"
"Who's silly idea was this?"
"Tell me just once more why can't we go to the top
of Scafell in the car."
