I envy your training regime and wish it worked for me as well.

However..... .... that kind of activity will NOT help me at the SB Triathlon this year..... (sprint tri..... but still)

Nooooooo, I've reached the current end of the thread..... you guys have kept me entertained for the last week or so on the train to work. Great work eatpasta and the racing Obi-wan (Mike) just wish I lived across the pond and could join you for some of these races. Currently waiting for the head to be welded and new valve seats added then I'll be raring to get some practice in with the aim of going racing :)
Although my fitness level is way low...hoping to ride into shape ;) thanks for the inspirational thread and keep going.... amazing to see how much you've improved over the course of the thread :)

I'll be heading over to Bluebull's thread, but, am looking to hear about more of your exploits oh and love the videos :)

Really glad you enjoyed it! In the beginning I really wanted to be able to go back and see for myself what it was like to start racing but people seem to enjoy it - which is great.
I would think though that the thread has run its course....

Sarah Champion. A few years ago an amazing couple stayed with me on the tail end of their year long world trip - James and Emily. They are from London and contacted me via the Tent Space thread on this site. Well a week or so ago James mailed me and said a friend of his was in town and we should meet up.
So the wife and I had a great time with Sarah and her man Lee the other night. Its enough to make me think about moving to the UK! Except apparently there's never any sun..... so.....

Cool, it never ceases to amaze me how biking brings people together, it's a great life.. I think you'd definitely miss the sun althiugh o tye upside it's a bit rarer that you overheat on a ride...
We also have a lack of desert and a lot of our green lanes are controlled or are bei g made no access...I think you guys win on the freedom to ride off road from what I've seen. We do have some great lanes though and a fair bit of mud to enjoy

its on my bucket list to head over the pond and spend about a month looking around England, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man, Ireland etc.
Travel is enough for a lifetime but a lifetime is never enough for travel....


I'm thinkin about doing another video for this last Grand Prix that I did on Saturday...... it was a freakin HOOT. Hillclimbs, steep rocky bits, Supermoto style through a parking lot?!, onto a car racing dirt oval kind of thing, up stairs onto a trestle?? so much fun!

That was my first GP and I had an absolute blast. I forgot my GoPro and am so sorry I did. It would have made for some fun scenes.
