Sunday morning saw my first half way decent ride since my crash. Just under 33 miles up and down the hills that litter the area around where I live. very nice it was too. I am still missing out a lot of my commuting miles due to the need to drive too and from a distant location for a job I am working on but the legs and the lungs are coming back. all I need to do now is get the fundament back. Saddle sore or what!
another topic- The Manx Missile strikes again. Mark Cavandish has
emerged vistorious from his first European race of the season- the
Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne. Apparently he was not feeling too well but still
nailed it due to the way Team Sky controlled te race and delivered him
to the launch pad. Well done Cav and well done Team Sky!
another topic again, the Saturday before last, Mrs Secret Cyclist and I
spent the day at the Olympic Velodrome for the UCI track World Cup
event being hosted as part of the London prepares series. Awesome! The
venue is fantastic and the noise as Team GB riders did their thing had
to be heard to be believed. Jo Rowsell being followed around the
velodrome by an acoustic Mexican Wave as she rode to the Individual
Pursuit gold was spine tingling and the roars as Sir Chris Hoy launched
himself from close the the back of the line to take his heat and the
final in the keirin was something to behold. I think Team GB is on for a
good selection of medals in the Olympics if this keeps up.
Photos will follow when time allows.
Update on previous post.
Towards the end of last year I told about helping out at an accident where an elderly gent had been knocked down- here. Sadly I learned recently that the old guy didn't recover and has passed away. Gutted.
