Morning all, apologies (as usual) for the tardy posting of updates.

Welcome to the 2019 challenge, a tidy two dozen of us sallied forth under generally grim January skies, don't know about you chaps but I would welcome a settled period of cold clear weather. Doesn't appear to have stopped many of you getting out there though, Dead Calm makes a welcome return from injury to set the early pace with Svetty and five others in hot pursuit. I shall endeavour to get myself up towards the head of the field over the next couple of months, there's got to be some benefit found from being made redundant and having three months' gardening leave... :cry: hey ho!
Ride hard and be safe :D

Likewise hope the weather is kind during your gardening leave and that the job hunt goes well!

Well this is shaping up to be a good contest, five people squeezing onto February's podium with another four in hot pursuit. Lost a couple of riders at the first (clearly something has gone awry in the file as it's not showing them but am damned if I can see where the issue is...)
Thanks MikeEye and FatCat for the kind words, my intended charge to the front of the field has been delayed by the job search, half-term, a new roof and ticking over on TrainerRoad. All the best everyone.

Haven't entered this year... but it has been extremely easy to clock century rides through this winter... :-)

Three riders down in March - a smidge of daylight for the top two with seven others fighting hard for the wheel and third place on the podium. At least now the clocks have gone forward, just need it to warm up a bit! Stay safe...

Svetty - have had to guess at your April rides as a large chunk of your data is missing, can you update please and I can amend if necessary.
Cruff and Dish_Dash have big months and the front of the bunch stays nice and compact, shaping up to be a good contest!

Not sure what's happened as my posting on 1st page looks OK to me. Only 4 points in April:

6th April 168k 1 point Total 14 points
13th April 173k 1 point Total 15 points (Paris-Roubaix challenge)
17th April 100k 1 point Total 16 points
20th April 120k 1 point Total 17 points

Cheers!
FFS! Harden up and grow a pair :D

Bizarre. I can see it all now, laptop must have been having a temporary moment. Four was a lucky guess, cheers for confirming.

is it too late to join in? Have likely done a metric each month, need to double check?
