    With a TT you do ALL the effort yourself. Correct me if I am wrong.

    I completely agree. It may not be as exciting to watch as guys beating each other up on the road but in terms of sporting achievement it's impressive.

    Maybe it wasn't you Frenchie who was moaning about how Wiggins et al winning races by just being a great TTer, my memory isn't great.

    TTs are properly boring.

    There's genuinley only two TTs I've found interesting. Cancellara's 2009 Worlds effort in Switzerland and the 2004 final Tour TT, but only because there was a glimmer of hope Armstrong would fail (and I could only listen to it on the radio, which would have otherwise been a phenomenally dull car journey).

    If only you'd been born before 1989 ;)

    Just wait though.

    Next year, you'll be 40. Don't ask me how it happens, but it does. One moment you're in your mid-twenties with your life before you, the next year, you're forty. You feel exactly the same, mark you. Just a little more interested in pensions.

    I'm close to the four zero. At 20 I thought I knew it all. 20 years later I knew three times as much, but I realised I knew sod all.

    you bloody kids don't know you're born.

    Wait til you're 42 & 3/4. 43 isn't even a landmark.
