Unfortunately I could not find any pictures of my first ever win. (as a bike rider)
It was a mass start hill climb, many separately started fields for different age / gender groups. I was the masters (40+) winner.

So, no pictures, but here is a grab of the video I recorded with LIC Ego from my handlebar.
This is just 130m from the line, when we started the sprint. The finish line is where the tent is. I won by about 2 seconds. What a great feeling!

Here's one from yesterday's 25 mile TT on the F1/25.

Managed to pump out a 57:36 even though I was suffering with a knot in my left calf cramping up. I'd been desperately massaging, rollering, and stretching it for the last few days hoping to clear it up. :(

Winner was Michael Hutchinson with a 49:42 :unbelievable: But there were no others under 53, so I'm pretty happy with 24th of 95 starters given the bewildering array of TT weaponry on display.

I have to go up there?

Each year there is normally a ride up the Tourmalet at night. Obviously cancelled this year due to the flooding but they replaced it with a night climb of Luz Ardiden.

Started at 21h and thick mist most of the way up so zero visibility. Really good fun though.

Due to a misunderstanding me and a friend thought it was a race and went proper hard. Everyone else cruised up but at least we got a mention in the newspaper.

after exactly 2 years of racing, I finally got some decent pictures of myself:
VROOM!
Image
my 'skinny' legs shot at exactly the right moment from exactly the right angle...
Image
*apart from a filter no photoshop was applied to this image
and
Image

after winning my first race about 4 weeks ago, after a solo attack of 41 km (and exactly 60 minutes) in a race of 50 km :roll: couldn't do any training for 3 weeks due to other activities and a crash, started my training again last week...
these pictures are taken in a 64k race last sunday, I attacked after about 7km did about 25km solo, my advantage on the bunch was between 40 en 20 sec, then 1 guy made the jump, we worked together untill the last lap and he beat me in the sprint...
I'm supposed to be a climber, did about 150 km of training in 4 weeks and the other guy's legs where twice the size of mine, so I'm pretty happy with second place...

Awesome work!

Only when you tell a cycling story, don't add the 'excuses' type stuff. Like below

it destroys the theatre of your shots and race. Loved reading/seeing the rest though. Break away wins, always my favourite!

Brough my CX bike to an XC race! Did pretty well though. There was a ton of climbing and the fast parts weren't too technical.
