More 3 Peaks from a Welsh/Belgian perspective
Hello fellow Belgians. It's been a while since I wrote anything on the site, as my fingers have whittled away to tiny stumps after updating the Odoni blog pages. Anyway......after another failed attempt at 4 hours on the Peaks, I thought it would be a cathartic experience to capture it all on an LCD screen. You can find my race report here: http://bit.ly/n3JGMd
The picture on the left was taken by my mother-in-law at last years race. I felt the same this year. Apologies for the green jersey, I'm undercover at the Peaks, but wear my special flanders socks as a secret sign (and my jacket whilst warming up and cooling down).
A few quick special mentions. Well done Rich Allen for a fine effort. He sped past me on the steep bit at Ingleborough. Well done Alan for another solid effort. Very well done Rich for riding a fixie (I do admire a one cog merchant) and many thanks Jo for another king size slab of cake at the finish. Also best wishes to Dave Haygarth for a speedy recovery (look after that collarbone).
It was nice to catch with some Belgians new and old. See you next year at the Ronde.
