PM me your address and I'll mail you your just rewards! As I remember, Max had the worst of it as far as we were all concerned - 3+ hours from midnight onwards - never stopped raining mud either...

Cheers, will do.

It was watching the wind pick up a 15'x15' gazebo and drop it on the course, narrowly missing some riders, that made me think that maybe conditions were against us.

Max did indeed perform heroically.

I went out after a bedraggled Max at 3am - lights packed up after an hour and I returned with a front puncture (picked up at the top of the Kenda climb - just before the only rideable part of the course) around 6.30am - fortunately the day breaking saved my morale, otherwise I'd have just huddled down into a little ball and cried myself to sleep in a mud pool... happy days! :cry:


JV was up next for the croissants and coffee lap and flew round the fast drying course, adding insult to injury when remarking that he didn't see what all the fuss was about...

Mr K

PS. No mention of the Somme so far....
:roll: :wink:

Thank you for lending me your lights for the lap before Max's, the one just as it started to rain.

Sorry about that, if I had been faster your lights may have got you round, I have my own for this year.

Wots that then?

I have difficulty even saying the word :?

But I do suffer from advancing years :cry:

However, I can go out on my bike every day if I want :D

So long as I'm not sent shopping, gardening, decorating etc. :(
