Day 9 I got to day 9 tc, so I've only got a day and a bit of into the unknown this year, that's what I'm holding onto anyway.
See you tomorrow!
Followed it last year on tripe talk which rather impinged on my work output, Big Ted is my hero. Will be watching from afar once again, but as mad as a box of frogs doesn't do you guys justice.
TC - a tip - when you get in the water, swim in the correct direction please and not like you did at Henley last year when a) you arrived late for the start and b) started swimming downriver and not up where everyone else was headed.......
actually - no - in hindsight do as you did 'cos it was so fecking funny to watch.....
good luck guys - hope to get across on either Mon or Tue to give some abuse....
Good luck everyone, I can't imagine the physical and mental torment a deca or quin, but will be following with interest.
There is an institution out there missing its mentalists. I'll be sending the white van to Avon Tyrrell Outdoor Centre. If you're lucky, some may have blue flashing lights on the top.
On a serious note - Good luck to you TC, Monique and all other participants.
Good luck to evryone who's competing in the various events at AT over the next 10 days - I'll be watching the news feeds/reports with interest/amazement. Hope the weather turns out to be a bit more "moderate" than last year...
TC - was that you on the softride at the Chiltern Hundred?
Good luck to everyone taking part.......knock em dead Mon .....
Yes Good luck all special good lucks, best wishes and aAAaaarrrgghhhs to Mon!
This time next week guys ..... errr, it still wont be over Race strong Monique and any of our Tripe Talk friends
they all seem to be going well..............11 of the 12 started...i hope we keep the 11 all week.it was horrible last year waiting with baited breathe each day to see how many got into the water at 6 am........out of the 20 starters only 3 finished............this year they all understand how tough the course is
good luck TC and Mon, and thanks for the summary TC

Ah jeez, happy days. I'm glad you witnessed that FB, I havent made sufficient numpT capital out of it.
CatHat - Good to hear there is another person of taste riding a SoftRide, as wasnt me at Chilterns. Was it a straight beam or curvy beam one?Muchos cheers for your responses and support. I was told of some of the comments during my race and it cheered me up ta. I must owe it all to you guys!
Sorry I prostituted my text from TT at the last mo (I was still finishing off at work till 11.30 pm, and had yet to pack anything!!) , but it was in a good cause and to wave a new flag. As its impossible for you normal folk to keep up on the EnduroBabble threads.
Apologies Mon , Day 9 bike it twas
Mon - I have decided. I love you so much that I'm going to deny myself, and let you go. I failed to press your button on Day 5. Just couldnt find the On Switch to get you running again. So I'm not right for you, and I'm going to let Dave have you instead, as you said you loved him so much, even tho your brain was addled on that last rainy DNF run. I know you'll be bouncing back at something to catch your imagination soon. Keep off the Lard, as I think you AND Dave (2 person teams) should have a go at O till O for example:
Look - No Cycling!
I understand that TC is in fact a machine and made the deca look easy.
Congratulations on your result
He was a machine.......he just sprinted past everyone on the run on Day 10..........still taking time to give encouragement......It was amazing to see........
