Kaiser won the dunkeld one too.... or was that because he pussied out and left early :)

I suspect all just part of his master plan - truly Macretro-avellian the lengths he will go to to win. Look at last year - Arran and Glentrool too, all timed to perfection.

Don't think it should be too organised velo, part of the fun is the realisation that you're getting near the end and that the bullshit will soon be beginning.


Arran was epic, singlespeed too :D

OK compromise, what about a sailing type start, everyone milling around behind the line trying to be facing the right way when the start is signalled. Loads of guile and cheating possible there :lol:


Never thought about using a sail :idea: pair of Gazz's pants across ma barends should see me home and dry :lol: :lol:

Aye, great plan until wind direction suddenly changes and you get a faceful. Would surely leave you a broken shell of a man.

Arran was a good one, tried to ninja it but you were too wily by far.

It would be an emotional rollercoaster for sure, the fear, the elation, the fear, the nausea. I wonder would you herald my bravery or decry me a reckless fool?

I would visit you in whichever hospital for the mentally deranged you would surely end up in.
