The Notorious PVC

I think what with all the hubbub surrounding the glorification of  Velocake in the national press I should be writing something and keeping everyone's enthusiasm going, so here's a bit of stuff that's been going on.

If you've not already seen it in this months Cycling Plus magazine, there's a whole page spread about us, including a photograph and also a lot of altering of my interview, I never said anything about sportives.
(The photo is...... enhanced by Alan doing an impression of a beret wearing psychopathic bike messenger.) .  Buy it if you need a laugh.

Tim and Toby Kershaw have now moved on to a glitzy big name team, although they are gone, there's always a place for them here.
Good news though, as two leave, two join.  Everyone's favourite bike shop monkey, Simon Barnes has come back to the fold and welcome everyone to Hannah Collingridge who has joined up.

As it's a long time till September, this weekend i am channelling my inner Belge and on Sunday I'll be watching  De Ronde Van Vlaanderaan, drinking Duvel, and eating frites and wafel and avoiding the paps.

The two T's have moved on to a tinpot local club in Yarkshire, they're still in the family though.
Still, Simons back :D

Fame and glory are temporary but scars are forever.

That picture with al in will scar forever.

How come they used a picture from when we had been freezing our butts off for hours and were a little fed up? I am sure there were far better ones of more of us in the coffee shop.:/

Off to town at lunch to buy my copy of C+. Do I get a discount in Smiths if I wear my VeloCake armwarmers?

Me and T have moved to Pedalsport our local shop based club who have a good team in the Yorks CX scene. We trained with them for most of last season so thought it was only right to join up and support them properly.

You don't have to explain yourself to this lot Tim, anyway there's always 2nd claim :)
