It's that time again; mid-summer and the 24 hour season is well and truly upon us. After the Team VC's success (ahem) at the National Solo Championships, VeloCake is sort of racing at Mountain Mayhem.
Four years ago the youngest member, James Kay was absolutely terrible at the first Bonty 24/12. Not only did he pack after one lap, he locked his keys in the car and was up till 4:30am waiting for the breakdown man to turn up. With all this behind him, he's now ready for Mayhem. Although he's riding for his employer, Freeman Hardy Willis, he will be wearing the team colours in the 10 member "fun" catagory. He might get to ride 2 laps.
On a slightly different track, but again with a summer connection.
You know how for a couple of weeks in July the Tour's on telly and they always show le peleton thundering down towards the finish line.
Well, John has been doing some road races and had his photograph taken at the front of the bunch.
Next time John, be a little more "pro" and get the name on the shirt in shot.
