I see that my almost compass like directional sense is getting it's usual level of respect (although how quickly Farmer forgets, I had to nurse him round HoNC one year and in the 2007 Peaks Ride I recall having to 'motivate' him away from a quivering lower lip).

Don't hate the player, hate the game.

Don't worry Ed, I've discovered wine gums is all it takes to motivate Wu up the hills. That and carrying his spare socks and pedalling away so he has to chase you down to get them back.
