Tut tut tut, I know it’s late but I’ve been a busy boy, sorry.


Well I reckon there’s a fair bit to cover since my last post – end to end mountain bike race, Scarborough gold cup, coast to coast bike race and the usual goings on.


Me, Dan and Aiden went over to the end to end mountain bike race in the Isle of Man, we was kindly put up, fed and watered by Tom and his misses and had a right good race. I beat last years place but only just. Thanks a million for all the support, sorry about some of the strange faces I was pulling, I was in pain – a bit more training is needed I reckon and loosing a few more pounds wouldn’t hurt would it?


Oh aye, the tranny blew up two days before the end to end as well, so that meant a few late ones to sort her out, bugger.


The scarborough gold cup, hmm , I’ve won it for the last few years, but it wasnt meant to be this year was it? Thanks again for all the support, mega as usual, but sorry about the results, I had a bit of bother getting the bikes to work right, we had a bit of trouble with stupid stuff and left Scarborough like a bear with a sore head.


So from then on I’ve been away doing a job for the BBC – it’s a change of scenery to the truck job but its not real work is it? I’m learning a lot, only another few weeks left to do, then back to a bit of normality.


A change to the norm is a bit of camping. I reckon it’s the future, tried it in the lake district the other week, I could be huck’d.


This sunday just gone, Aiden, Mark and me did the coast to coast in a day. Workington to Newcastle on push bikes, that has put manors in me, I’ll tell you a bit more detail on all subjects when i get a bit more time.


Keep her steady.
