Box Hill Challenge 2014

I am in Pantani celebration week, so after many weeks of absence I ventured down to Box hill on a glorious day... the aim was to ride with panache, a la Pantani, with the hands on the drops...
To the MAMIL who pipped me to the line: Yes, for your age and shape you're not a bad climber, but attacking 10 metres to the line after sitting on my wheel for half a mile brings no glory, I'm afraid, plus you attacked without flare and panache, just for the sake of it.
To the guy on the Carbo-tanium Serotta: Yes, I did look at you when I passed and then attacked... although the look might have been mistaken for one "a la Armstrong", it wasn't... it was a Pantani look

Forgot to take the time, but it was surely awesome and certainly top of the board... 8)
