Thanks for the input guys, I was being just a tiny touch sarcastic about the bikes, but held back from the 'all the gear...' phrase.
"Power bulge", PMLS, I love it. We used to have those on cars, in order to cover the enormous power house of an engine. I'm afraid I'll have to do without, as at just over 6' 1" and now nudging 76 kg's (down from just over 80), I would have to do something pretty dramatic (like pregnancy) to add such... erm, power, to myself.
Talent? Erm, no, that'd be my son, but I do like to test myself and have competed in 'me against me' type sports a lot in the past.
I'll read the rules and guidelines, talk to some local clubs and see what's what for the 2013 season.
Yeh, like all 1600cc of a Ford crossflow in a Capri.
Good luck with your enquiries for next year, I'm sure you'll find something local to you.
Today is the yesterday of tomorrow.
