    Thanks for that mate. Hope things are better for you than it sounds! It's been a wierd season. Started to get properly fit then whenever I make the "big effort" takes an eternity to recover - and I'm sure it's not old age! Team Bridgeford Castle rode the Ariegeoise in the Pyrenees the other...

"I just forgot myself, but my bike handlings good isn't it" he's reported to have said. Couldn't be BRF, there...

    It only feels like a few weeks ago someone on this site didn't know what a 10 was and now we're up to a 24! Looks like we're in for fun next season! I'll certainly take you on in anything from a 10 to a 50 and possibly the 100. I only ride on J courses so I'll wave as I pass by! The Mariners are...
