I’m far too tired to entertain you with witty repartee, all I can say is it doesn’t get any easier and any clear rounds on the climbs were hard won today .
Our old friend Capt. Alex Wright joined us on loan from Ryanair , He wanted to charge us all £10 to cycle with him .Didi and Pamela started early along with Hugh ,The girls did brilliantly and knocked out the four laps . Hugh was running out of battery and had to leave after 3.
Leona got a puncture which was fixed by Al , no cause for the puncture was found and I later caught Liz trying to let the air out of her tyre 😉
Not much to say about the route which remains steadfastly unchanged . Robbie distinguished himself not only my staying for four rounds but by a descent of the gully like has never been seen …straightlining is all I can call it , I know he was in full control. Cormac was his usual gentlemanly self looking after the back markers but was also going well and you will see the shot of him launching himself off the end of the world.
Kenny …. what can I say about Kenny , despite having just been assailed by a virus which would have killed lesser mortals and despite doctors advice to quit after 3 , he steadfastly refused and finished like the true NTSR soldier he is .
PS was going so well that a call was made for drug testing , there is no knowing what these 6.1ers can be up to.
Another great day, hope I’m able to do number 12 .
