Entries have opened. I have put in for the 22nd June but have never done anything like this before! Should be fun.

    I might be back in bed by then. Or in hospital.

    I'm in. I've never done a TT race and haven't done any training outside commuting for 2 months so this is going to hurt. A lot.

    Worth it if you win a voucher.. :wink:

    I'd assume all these extended commutes were training for this TT.

    Heh heh. No danger of me winning a voucher.

    The extended commutes are not doing me any good. I'm getting slower. Which might be age. B*gger.

    26? I should be so lucky. I'm going to be delighted if I don't come dead last.

    If it's clear I've sat with a mate before now and watched, and remarked on the tie fighter noises!

    You're right, no chance whatsoever. The main reason for this would be that you've neglected to enter...
