Stood next to and chatted with Henri Toivonen's dad at the flying finish of the Grizedale stage of the 77 RAC Rally......

Er, sorry. Thought we'd morphed into really weak rallying claims to fame there.

Living in a relative backwater on the world cycling stage, I can't really compete with anything posted so far and the closest I can get is:

Owning a wheelset which briefly led the first World Cup round and were used in the Olympics in 2004, and
have had several brief conversations with Sam Hill and Tracey Hannah (reigning DH world champs - Mens and Junior womens) but mainly as an official.

working in the industry i've kinda "done" almost everything so here's a few not really cycling related ones

Used to do a girlie aerobic class at our local gym with JMC to keep fit over winter, he was even good at that ! :D

met Kevin Swantz in Vegas, we shared a booth with Dainese so i got to work with him for 4 days, he's one of my heros in motorcycling and it took me about an hour before i could actually speak to him and its not like me to be lost for words :D

Went 10 pin Bowling with Max Commencal on a night out at one of the early season test camps , it ended up in a UK v's France finale which I managed to win, I've never been under as much pressure :D
