Hi Guys
Just finishing off some work to my van but will definately be there. Havnt got a schedule but will try to be at Trumpton with kaiser and the boys.
Will probably drive past Edinburgh and sleep in the van somewhere.
Just checked the route finder and I am looking at 477 miles to get there and a 10 hour and 20 minute drive.
That doesnt factor in the old VW van and a 73 mile an hour top speed :roll: (on a steep hill)

Jamie ( leaving soon)

Trip to Trumpton eh?

I am aiming to complete one lap, Ive ridden Dalby a few times, and am local-ish (well I aint 10 hours away!) so Ive no need to get that out of my system, also, Im pretty lazy. Aim low, that way you are less likely to be disappointed when you fail.

We should rock up in the afternoon, will then take a tootle round a bit of it to see if I can remember how to ride a bike, then I shall open a beer. After that moment it will be out of my hands.

I would love to see a RB win, however in '07 I was lapped during my first lap by the eventual winner, and he looked like he was actually made of granite.
