Nice one Steve, good to see you still smiling.
Nice one Idai, comprehensive :thumbsup:
Nice one Lesley and Andrew too, good to see what you're doing for Steve daynight after night after night.
2017 targets: Two achieved, the two remaining look to be at significant risk.

Thanks Idai.  That was excellent.  You asked all the questions I wanted you to.
Thanks Steve.

I really enjoyed that - and apologise that Idai had to interrupt Steve's refuelling on our behalf! Thanks to both of you, great stuff!

Steve is averaging some 193 mls a day now since restart

Great work Idai. You do a good interview  :thumbsup:.

Sounds like Steve needs a nutritionist though!

Can I make a suggestion. Not the most important thing, but I like the way I see little updates from Kurt appearing on my Facebook news feed, even if I don't read/watch them. Like on here with the daily threads, would people be prepared to post Steve's Strava upload each day onto Steve's wall and name him in the comment? I'll do this myself when I can, but I'm going to be off touring soon and don't expect good connectivity. It's not much (and turning Auto-share on in his Strava account would do it automatically for no extra work - if the team are reading this), but it would just give a little prompt, jogging people's memories.

Kurt probably posts on Facebook while he's sat on the john. Using time wisely.  ;D

I could hardly bear to watch that bit.

I was almost shouting; Will SOMEONE eat that PASTA before it goes cold! Don't just look at it!

( I hope he really likes spag - I'd be ordering pasta in a more manageable shape, if it was to eat after a 200-mile day.)

What a positive interview.
Especially Steve's extraordinary statement that the accident may have helped him.
Breathtakingly positive!

BTW My wife commented that it's a shame Changing Rooms is no longer with us.
Steve coming home to find his cycling man cave had been made over would be great TV.

If his room was 'made over', he wouldn't be able to find things, which would be wasting his time. Leave it as he left it.  :thumbsup:
