    Hi Ian, How’s things with you? Hope all is good. I’m good, currently not racing as a bit injured and need a rest but good time of year for that. I’m keen to set some goals for 2016 and the European Skyraces are calling again! Just wondered if there’s any word on the ground as to which ones will be in the word series? (Good news about the prize money for the UK Skyraces, I’ll hopefully do one or two.) No doubt see you soon,Anna
