indeed july 2005

the north american ones fill up within 24 hours - you'll need to talk yourself into it by 25 July 2004 and then sign up sharpish on line the next morning

looks like we might have a big excursion in the making.....

Back from France now and have uploaded a few pics from our Lanzarote trip. Not many action ones, mostly drinking but you get the picture! Anyone who did Tough Guy earlier in the year can keep an eye out for Steve, Bass and Emmie.

Love the pics. The pre-race one even makes me nervous though !!

Blimey Rich - after doing some of the bike course (by fluke) at the weekend there I'm full of admiration. Some of those roads are very heavy going. The road over Timanfaya (Spelling ?) was fine coming away from La Santa, but heading back into the wind was a b*gger !

Yeah, Cougie that's the first big climb up through Timanfaya, not steep but long and the road surface is awful, great descent down into La Santa though. The next climb up Haria, is similar, a long, slow drag into the wind, but the third one up Mirador is steeper, but there are spectacular views up there to take your mind off the pain.

Did you have a good week then? Bet you were in the pool every morning at 7am doing a quick couple of kilometres before breakfast.

I'll have to look out for the other climbs next time then.

Week was great thanks - saw your name on the results and turned out the bike stand I used was next to your number ! Spooky.

Erm, swimming. Yeah.

I'm doing Lanza too. First time I M also. I m a month in Spain putting the bike miles in- good long climbs. Formerly a runner (London - 2:47 no tapering/ultras etc) but can't cycle down hill very well! Scares the hell out of me. Prefer going up! Worried that this could screw up my day. Swimming ropey on account of pneu and lost fair bit of strength. Will I be ok: ie finish. 350 miles last week on bike with good 10 mile climbs. Figure time in the saddle and doing some 200k rides will be beneficial? The Glasgow to ed sportive is a good tough 110. Spent most of last year in the saddle I guess. Spent time in Sierra Nevada doing 20 mile rides up to 1500m etc at end of 60m days. Just looking for re-assurance! Aaaaagh
