Down the M40 to Kingston Bagpuize today, will write more later, for now: usual complaints - including having to endure many hours of trains, a lack of food on said trains etc. etc. Will also have to write a report for the Willesden as four of us braved the terrible weather (the sun was (mostly) out, but that's about all that could be reasonably said ... we got sleeted on in the car park!)
Not a bad day, all said, finished in a good position overall again, and did a reasonably good time for the conditions (super-blowy).
I pushed extra hard (tasting blood in mouth, desire to be sick, oh yes) because I'd done so badly on this course in last year's BUSA 10 - somewhat bizarrely, today I managed to do exactly the same time Louis did on his superb debut ride on that fateful day!
No prize money, but in the prize draw afterwards, I won a pair of cycling sunglasses to add to my collection of awesome eyewear. According to this, they're worth a fair bit.
Again, there will be more later. My 27 hour odyssey to cycle for 24 minutes must be told.
