You are going to have countless people fighting to get on your wheel! Ho hum, should be fun! I tried an experiment this year and its working a treat. Last season I was road racing and always got boxed in for a sprint so I spent the winter saying that I am a good sprinter - backed it up with a few good efforts - and what do you know, if there is a sprint in a local race, everyone jostles for my wheel and I just go where I want to be. Fantastic!

its only 120 miles - shouldnt really be a problem as long as you take loads of food.mind you the ride home afterwards is probably going to be a bit knackering!

Apparently I was within the first half hour of people arriving from London, considering the gap must have been a few hours I'm sort of happy with it. Took 9 hours including four good breaks. Pretty chuffed - got today off to recover Pretty weird driving back down to London to think that I'd just ridden that distance. But it was cool. Riding past all the Oxford and Birmingham nancies at the end ruled When you actually got into the hall though it was bloomin dangerous, you entered on a hairpin and I was going fairly fast but what they didn't tell you was that the durface was very slippery. I was fine but apprently earlier on two guys came off - should have been warnings up or something. Oh yeah and my arse was it only 120 miles. Other people who were actually look at their trip distances were saying things ike it was a good 10 or so miles over. The whole thing was on B roads from start to finish apart from a stint on the A40 near Oxford. But anyway, I spent the day overtaking people, only got overtaken by some time trialers on carbon bikes and oh man the amount of overweight guys who ride once in a blue moon on top team spec bikes was depressing. These guys are obviously under the impression that spending 4 grand on a bike will make you a better rider. I was just on an £800 Trek 1200 and I was slaughtering these people.

The marshalling was excellent - those guys deserve mucho credit for standing out there all day directing a bunch of idiots where to go.
