The last vestiges of the SBR team cycle the King of the North Downs
Thursday, 2 August 2012
There's been a bit of a mixed bag of emotions surrounding the Olympics.
While Wiggo has been collecting gold in the TT (shot here on the Portsmouth Rd) the previous weekend was a bit more of a shock.
The gold expected by Cavendish didn't appear but Lizzie did us proud in the rain the following day.
I met up with Andrew for the Men's Road Race and a very nice day it was too. There was a real party atmosphere down on the A24 where we pitched up at a spot just as the riders turned into Mickleham village. Little did I know that a fellow SBRer was standing just outside the church in the village.
Andrew also had a chat with this guy, no wonder he was late onto the Mall with those little legs.
All of which provides great inspiration for the Le Mans 24hrs. Thanks to Matt this now looks like being a 24 hr race for Paul, David and myself. A leisurely ride in France has just turned into a potential epic.
