... so the weather could be as shit as the UK

I must say ... although i thought the Outlaw was a nice race .... I like to race mainland europe where there is a better chance for nicer weather.

I especially like racing in Germanic countries: Nice weather, good crowds, well organised and you can drive there

some of us are doing Ch'triman in late August - it's between Dover and Dunkirk so easy to get to -

What the middle of the Channel ????

That's the swim, Dave.

At least its going to be cooking in Lanza in May (at least I hope so).

The last 5-6 ive done have been a mixture of cold, windy, raining, cloudy, 8loody miserable.  I'll take the heat over other weather any time.

You should be a beta reader for my book ... that would keep you busy

Isn't that what you have an editor for, Will?  

If you need one, my rates are very reasonable...

Being so dyslexic, I have to edit 3 times myself, including help from a couple of beta readers before its in any shape that an editor wouldn't laugh me out of there office .... very embarrassing.

Hmm. If I'm probably not racing in 2014 I should probably butt out of the debate. Duly noted.

That said, can I comment that early season racing which necessitates 4+hr riding in Feb is stupid. Don't pick an early race.

I quite agree, I've started doing cycles promptly followed by saunas!

I think it was Mousey that does the strip turbo after a long bike ... get warmed up while you warm down 

23/02/2013 at 17:34
Yep. That's me.
