Those watching the live feed were treated to a spectacular finish by Scott Babbage – he explains all here, and if you want to see it its at Minute 32 on this video.

Just in case that wasn’t enough, a conspiracy on the live chat resulted in a very special moment  – video. I won’t spoil the fun and tell you what happened… it made our day.

And if you haven’t seen the whole sequence of our very own Ricky Tagg having a slightly silly moment.. here it is. Thank you to Thierry Martinez for capturing it! More of his excellent photos can be found here.
