Well, just before bedtime and after the return journey from hell (but with flash floods) there's just time and energy for me to thank all of you for being such great company and support on what was one of the best experiences I can remember. I loved my first race and (despite my swearfest after the final lap) Mrs Wu and I thouroughly enjoyed ourselves amid such great company.

Thank you all.

Particular shout out to the Guv'nor JV for creating the retrobike cult and base and getting it all together generally, and Mr and Mrs K for an awesome bbq (even if it was stopped by some solo riders needing sleep - they have it easy - don't know why everyone feels sorry for them, they get to go out and not go out whenever they like!) and for constantly lending me matches (of all the things to forget).

Look forward to seeing more pics.

...and sorry for going on about tyres so much Gump. On reflection I think that may have been a moment to reign in the OCD. :)

Night night all.

p.s...Chris, I reckon I hardly changed - I even wore the same shirt for four laps! Didn't even ride with a backpack. !!! :shock:

When those at MM have had chance to sort their pics please either post in their personal gallery or under the retrobike MM gallery here> http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/mai ... emId=26882

Users should be able to setup their own sub-galleries as I have done already.

...and a particular apology to Heathy for taking so bloody long on the previous lap that he missed out for a last blast on the course.

Sorry pal, I owe you one.

just a quick 1 to say well done to everyone who survived the weekend, especially the heroic efforts of dragging bikes around the mud laps on sunday. the moustache selection arrived late on sunday, a little late for the event.

Thanks to all for a great weekend, it was really good to meet everyone and for the support (even if it often took the form of telling me to go out for another lap although there was much needed help and references to 'Cool Hand Luke' in assiting me through the 24 mini Scotch eggs that my wife thoughtfully provided as perfect racing food). Rather worrying last night to look at the neat and shiny exposed steel on the insides of the chainstays and forks where the mud had rubbed away, perhaps even more worryingly I touched it up with red paint.

Everything at work today seems a bit surreal, almost as if I'm jet lagged (my aching left knee lets me know that this is not the cause of my bewildered state).
