    Do we have to call him Sir Colin yet?

    Nice one chap. Those rainbow bands suit you I reckon.

    :oops: :oops:


    It's been a great year and preparations of this have gone well. Weather conditions were a little scary with rain and harsh winds leading up to event but it stayed dry on the day making the very technical course easier to handle.

    Won by 12.5 seconds over the reigning champion. Couldn't be happier as this was my goal all year. Next up is the road race on Saturday!!

  • Great stuff
    Ps what's the guy in orange's disability?

    He's got pretty severe cerebral palsey. Looks ok but he lacks coordination.

    Wow , congrats on an excellent result. Best of luck in the RR.
  • Congratulations. Very proud to share a forum with you (and cuz I'm 50% Irish).

    Will follow your progress in the RR. Try to recover well and get in the zone.

    You seem to have lost your "Pokerface". Well done Colin.

    Could only manage 6th in the Road Race today. Just didn't have the kick to stay with the fastest lads. Still, a good World's for me. One Rainbow jersey will have to do!

    Last year I was 12th in the TT and 18th in the RR> so a good step up! Next up.... Track Worlds in February.

    Congrats on both results, what a fantastic achievement. It must be amazing pulling on a rainbow jersey!

    Thanks Jeff. I'm down to ride the Rudy Project TT next weekend - so might see you there. I'm first off and you're close to the end - so might see you before your start (unless you get there early)
  • well done. Thats an amazing achievement. If you can get any pics of the podium girls dont forget to stick them in Cake Stop.
