I can at last reveal what happened last Sunday in the YCF 10.
I went, I rode, I finished, I came home.
To be fair, I suppose there's a bit more to it than that though. It was so nice when I got up that I considered riding out but, sanity prevailed, and I went in the car. This was a good move as just before my start time (9.34am) the sky darkened, it got colder and it started to rain. I went for it anyway (seeing as how I'd paid for the privilege of getting wet) and peddled my 'parts' off into the wind for the uphill'ish outward leg and even more so on the downhill'ish return. Despite this I didn't manage to beat 20mph and recorded 31-07 which is not quite my slowest ever 10. I was slowest in the restricted 72" gear section - but not quite slowest overall as someone did 31-08. A young girl.
It rained harder and got colder for the 'normal' event so I'm glad I was back in the relative warmth of the event HQ and that I had a car to come home in.
You can see me in glorious technicolour here -

I'm the one in the retro flouro jersey and plain drop bars. No modernistic tri-bar rubbish for me!
Today is the yesterday of tomorrow.
