I am not sure how I'd take that from you now.......


I did 4 laps yesterday, two on the moto and two in the car :lol: I spotted Rik while I was out on the moto, then again when we were in the car. I think my words were "that mad bastards been doing that for hours" SWMBO said "training for everesting", Apparently she is always right so you better get to it Rik :lol:

Lol - spotted my old Vorb alias on here.... :paranoid:

Last road race done for a while so a summer of Mountain biking and running awaits. Rapaki must surely be the hill for an off-road Everest attempt?

Too much altitude lost in the middle there. Farm track a better bet? (although coming back down would be bloody hideous)

Nah - you only do a segment of the climb you like, so you wouldn't do the flat bit in the middle. Actually, I'd be inclined to do the segment up Kennedy's after the pine trees. Nice steady climb that and easy to descend when your brain has gone to porridge.

The MV farm track would be fine after that rough steep bit at the bottom. Start the segment above that bit and end it at the next gate.

You bastards got me thinking about it now.... :(

I remember a Panigale (Mmmmmm), and an FZR come past me. any of them you? If it was the Panigale, I'll have your babies?
I also remember seeing a discarded car tyre, a rusty screw, a worn grinder disc and a crushed cigarette packet the one with the mankie looking teeth on it, 12 times. So a couple of bikes hooning past where welcome relief from the monotony.

Maybe not this weekend as I was racing the Benchie all last Saturday, but you will catch me up there for a few. Last and only time I rode I won B grade. Suppose that means I have to ride A?
