After a solid ride on the infamous 2014 BB200, Karl Booth threw his hat into the ring for the 2015 Highland Trail. It didn’t go quite according to plan but undeterred he lined up in Tyndrum again this year and set any ghosts to rest.
1/ After your ill-fated attempt last year, did you make any major changes to your preparation for this year?
2/ I know that you built a new bike not long before the HT, what was it and how did it perform?
|The Chinese Warrior awaiting instruction.|
3/ Were you ever conscious that people around the world were following your every move via Trackleaders?
4/ Was there anything you didn’t take but wished you had?

5/ What was the best thing you ate? … I appreciate that might be more to do with your condition than the actual quality of food consumed.
6/ Is there one section of trail that stands out in your mind above all the others be it good or bad?
8/ At what point did you ‘know’ you were going to finish?
9/ Did you have a ‘food strategy’ with regard to resupply points or did you ‘wing it’.
|Will Karl make it? Phil seems confident.|
10/ Are you going back next year?
