It might be worth noting in the external links section that the les Randonneurs Mondiaux website is up again and actually useful this time.

I've only being Audaxing a year and go solo as no-one I know is keen to do long distance stuff so this info is great for me.  Hope to have a go at SR 2011 but 200K is far enough at the moment.

All the CS stuff from this board posted this year is now resident on the new Cyclosportives etc board.

Anything pre-2011 is still here.

Humiliating Audax Beginner seems to have been deleted.

(Found page one in google cache, and was very amused.  As an audux beginner, it was not the information I was seeking, but still funny)
