I'm off early so I can set up on the Gorge!   :thumbsup:
It takes blood and guts to be this cool but I'm still just a cliché.

Was this yesterday? I was just thinking to myself "it was today and I've totally forgotten about it". Seems I was even more misorganised (as opposed to disorganised) than I thought!

Any gorge-ous photos from those who were there?
The unwilling rider and the one who leaves each control in turn without reluctance, with no desire to come back, obviously cannot be making the same journey, even though their brevets are identical.

I took a few pictures in Cheddar Gorge this afternoon, I think this one is possibly my favourite:

Some very nice bike pr0n on view and I am now wanting Rapha pink and white stripes on my car (sadly mine isn't black so I don't think it could work damnit).

So it was today. good! well, missed it anway.

Nice photos, but why do you want the stripes on your car? You almost have them on your jersey already! And you've probably earned them doing PBP.

Strange to think last Saturday I was riding down the Gorge and I was still probably slower than they raced up it!

Great pictures, both.  Feline, you had a great vantage point in the gorge.  I must have been standing about 10 feet away from Vorsprung in Taunton.

Cav is a bloody chameleon, I never spot him!  Did see Thor (the world champ stripes are the right kind of easy-to-spot).  Didn't see if Thor saw the "GO THOR!" on the road with its attendant CDC.

Boom looked superb at the finish.  Very much the smile of a man who thinks he's got it in the bag.
