I would like to point out that my speed record was done without the aid of rockets whilst wearing a thin trisuit that would have offered no protection to the tarmac if I'd come off and damaged it.....
anyhoo - if you want to see guys pedalling at at 124kph on the flat with a little drafting assistance from a very large truck - watch this and be amazed. you need very large cojones for this
fuck me - who woke this thread up when I was away for October?
like Smiffy, I first met Barlos in 2004 at the Vit. I was on my 2nd lap of the run and he was on his 1st. as I came up behind him I knew this gangly overweight (pot, kettle etc!) bloke running like a crippled giraffe was him.
he's typified the pirate spirit since
bon chance in Kona Carl, you've earned it dude.
just be shit
saw my surgeon earlier for a check up and he's happy with things so has discharged me.
he did say I have signs of grade 2 osteoarthritis in that knee which would explain ongoing stiffness in it, but I have to learn to live with that.
so he's happy for me to carry on running but get back into easily and not go daft
