  1. I am a BvH Tour `virgin` and enjoyed my first time ie.on the Tour. Last night`s Race/Time Trial Course was unfamiliar to me, and I agree with Andy that it was `a tricky little course.`I had planned to aim at 50-55mins as part of a strategy to pace oneself over the 5 days, and to avoid injury. However,I know that I have to take personal responsibility for my own actions if my judgement/pacing is inappropriate for the 5 day challenge. There was a great atmosphere at last night`s well organised event.I hope to make the Start Line,with my wife Katie, for tonight`s XC at Cofton Park.

  2. Ed – you’re scything wit is enough of a ‘lift’ – certainly perked up my morning!

  3. I like to let to let my feet do the talking, though my mouth has been known to run-off sometimes.

    At the risk of of sounding ‘modern’…women can be just as bad as men at, multi-tasking, reverse parking, washing up, swearing, changing tap washers, interior decor, flying aeroplanes, making @*&+ing cupcakes……And… may I say, just as good.

  4. Don’t know if that will ever be in the cards for me. Think I could probably multitask well enough to 6-minute mile and trip someone up at the same time… Shall we test this theory out at Cofton, Andy? 😉

  5. Chris and Caroline H-M:

    You gotta learn how to 6 minute mile and chat and the same time … come on Caroline … I thought women were supposed to be good at multi-tasking!!!

    Well done all tonight – a tricky little course.
