Sweet, Ben. It's whetted my appetite for more! Are you still hoping to assemble a DVD?

Most definitely! Things are starting to finally take shape on the DVD front, and I'm knee deep in editing at the moment. Unfortunately the problem with it being a sideline is that there's only so many hours in the day (or night in this case!). Rest assured that I'm putting as much of my spare time into it as I possibly can - and I'll be sure to jump up and down a bit when it's ready.

Excellent! I fully understand the pain of a real job getting in the way of bike stuff.

I have to say that the footage so far has made me come over all wistful. I can't wait to do the event again, although can't see myself getting pass for at least another few years. :(

I am so keen to do it again. (Un)fortunately I am getting married at race time next year. Connors kindly pointed out to me the other day that going forward it will clash with the anniversary. Mmmmm. Hopefully Kate will be understanding.

Really looking forward to the DVD after the VorbTV appetizer and the photos in the latest Spoke.

Most awesome race ever.

Gidday out there, have just returned from couple of days scoping out the last couple of stages for the 2010 Alpine Epic. New tracks and mind blowing scenery, will be approaching Lake Tekapo from an entirely new direction on the last day...

Entries flowing in and things taking shape.

Hope to see you there
