Golde Boots, shouldnt you keep away? We don't want our medal hopes dashed by twisted ankles or a DNF

I'd like to think Helen Jenkins has better taste, but GB on the sidelines winking at the Aussie girls might distract them for a bit?! They're a bit short sighted!

Whatever... I will just stand somewwhere near the finish line and take my top off... then we will have a real race!

Don't get too close to the finish line mate, you might need a lie down.

26/07/2012 at 17:43

Hmmm............maybe. I have the week off for DIY, but the plasterer has let us down, so may visit.the big smoke.

Anyone going to the TT on Wednesday?

29/07/2012 at 21:53

We're going up for the women's, will ask Funkin for input 'cos I'm rubbish at stuff like this...will report back

Mr Footed, it's pants. I feel for you. I do. If it makes you feel a smidge better, we also weren't allowed leave except in exceptional circumstances, we do get our days off though...

Cat - I'll be there for the TT, are you around for it? Where abouts?

Mrs. F - possibly the most pro-Olympics person I have on faceybookey right now... I love it

I'll be going up for the women's as well- I think Orca is also over for that weekend.

Slightly bigger map of the venue

I've got a ticket for the TT so I'll be in the finishing area (*beam*)

Enjoy the finish area FeFe.

GB - planning to be at Weston Green in Esher. The outound leg cuts through it, and the inbound leg goes past the other side of it. There will be a big screen and I think a pub.

If it helps you remember it's the green we cycled through after the horrendously bumpy road surface, before diverting around the back of Sandown.

I'm aiming to be there in time to watch both the women's and men's TT.

Yeah I know it... might be a bit of a mission to get to though as it's on the wrong side of the course if coming from the North.

Supposed to be 'working from home' in the morning as well, so cant leave for the Women's. Think I may just head to Sigma to catch it outside there and watch it on the screens, but worried it could be horrendously busy!!

I am happy as Fab will probably be riding on Wednesday...if Wiggo can't win, then I would like Spartacus please. His quote, "I'm a hard man"...ahem.I think Funkin should get him for me as a Limpets souvenir, I will get him a BV player

GB, glad to be of service. I am literally bounding around like a crazy woman wearing Wenlock hair clips...watching all kinds of random stuff...including the ladies BV which is sooo much fun! They have music and dancers and they are so very fit and lithe. Amazing. No wonder the tickets sell out!

Anyway, I am back to the sailing now. Go Ben!

I've noticed a passing resemblance between Funkin and Spartacus, Mrs F.  In appearance obviously, rather than the ability to ride into barriers at high speed.

I had to laugh when it got so cold that the beach volleyball players wore full body outfits rather than the usual bikinis.  I don't think that's what the organisers had in mind...

I think I may head in to Kingston or Teddington for the TT ... It would be rude not too I think

WIll also go in on Saturday to see the womens Tri and see if I can find a good location for Pirate Corner for the mens

Me and Sue will be down late Friday so will be around on Saturday for the women's tri

Hehe, CD, a pal of mine was at the BV and she said it was freezing by the end of the session! As for the Funkin/Spartacus thing, you've never seen them in the same room, have you
