It did...

hurt. Last post was the night before the 3-up. We did well, both in the 'having confusingly named team mates" category (me, Griffer and Giffer - makes it easy for me to shout motivation!) and in the overall (we won). Happy days.

P, Deadly Nedly and Grimer also acquitted themselves admirably, esp once they'd actually warmed up rather than hide in the back of the car drinking coffee!

The following week was the first proper TT of the year, the local open 25. New bikes, borrowed fast wheels (thanks Clive @ COB and Simo) and dialled (hopefully) positions. Needless to say Charlie-man was up for it in his white 'Eurostyle' skinsuit & retro cloth cap.

And no, I don't have a problem with sad Dad photos of my son in contrived poses... just so you know.

I also don't have a problem of photos of me looking like an idiot... like when I tried on the full skinsuit - pointy hat setup (note cycling slippers - a soon to be hit for cyclists everywhere who like to combine 'fast' with 'relaxed at home').

Morris was in attendance (and huge thanks to Katy Morris for Charlie-minding for a bit!) so we had a bit of reunion.

The fact that he was off 2 mins behind me was motivation enough to work hard enough to coat the sleeves of my new skinsuit in snot... nice. Time was all good, just under the hour on a sporting course and more to come, hopefully!
