Cool, you've done your tape in the same way as most of the Panasonic squad: white with blue end tape.

Ed, yours must be John's Paris Roubaix bike. I bet he lost his Cinelli logo on the cobble stones :wink:

Love the second photo Mel - Fignon in the gutter in his Castorama overalls being abused by the crowd and Urs taking the high line and rocking the Freuleur geometry with an awesome 'tache and the frankly weird combination of clips and straps and STis.

Oh, and here's a couple more photos of the dirty bike.....

A decent route on very quiet country lanes, basically the same ride that we've done as a group the last two summers:

Hampton Bishop - Mordiford - Dormington - Checkley - Woolhope - March Ridge - How Caple - Kings Caple - Orcop - Kentchurch - Garway - Bagwlyddiart - Wormelow - Much Birch -Holme Lacey - Hampton Bishop

Drop me a line when you're back and we'll sort out a ride.

In Belgium a couple of weeks ago I spied this amazing Panasonic team car.

Image

My self-respect was long gone, so I rushed over like a small child, gabbling wildly. Turns out the driver was Teun Van Vliet's brother-in-law and they use the car to publicise the Teun Van Vliet Classic ( www.teunvanvlietclassic.nl ).

Teun Van Vliet wore the yellow jersey in 1988 while riding for Panasonic. More recently Teun suffered two brain tumours and in 2006 was given a year to live. Happily, Teun is now cancer free and his sister and brother-in-law established the above event to raise funds brain tumor research. I understand that Teun will be riding next weekend with some ex-Panasonic colleagues - would be cool to attend next year.
