I hope you’ve all had a great years riding. I certainly have!

So did you achieve all you set out to do when you started training this time last year?
Have you gone up a category, finally gone under the hour for 25 miles, or completed the Etape Du Tour?
I’ve had a great year and managed to achieved all my aims. The biggest of which were my first 200mile ride and climbing all three road routes up Mt Ventoux in a single days ride. 4500m climbing in a 120 mile (200km) ride.

So what for next year? I think my biggest challenge is to persuade Mrs Flossie to agree to me having a C50!

Happy new year Weenies!

1st Open TT win ever
1 criterium win

Then we moved and it all went tits up

Damaged Shoulder ligaments, torn Bicep, and just to make it a very merry Xmas Tendon problems in my knee

I suppose 1 bonus was I managed to get rid of my Cat 1 so I dont have to travel the country to race next year :D

Looking forward to 2,3,4 races.

Did my first ever crit, not dropped
Did my first ever road race, dropped but learnt a lot.
Did my second ever road race, 5th place and 10 quid prize money. Fifth place has never felt so good.

Finished Campagnolo Gran Fondo with mates after loadsa training/planning:

Improved my triathlon placings but no podium.

Biggest achievement was having fun with wife, kids, career, friends.

Regards

Alan

I managed to hospitalise myself with a big old bout of hyponatraemia during a hot 24hr solo. I was motoring at the time too.
Learned lots. Sort of a good experience, for next year.

I didn't ride a lot on my bike because of my studies, but during the summer I could train a bit and race with some pro riders (pro continental riders only) since I was a 1st cate rider in France. But I didn't train enough to get good results so I'm moving back to 2nd caté :oops: But doesn't really matter as I succeed in studies :)

I crashed without breaking any bones. First time that's happened since 1987 and since it was on vacation in the dolomites it was especially good fortune.

Otherwise it was a pretty poor year on the bike, I think it started when I took a month off the bike to remodel the house and inhaled untold decades of god knows what in the tear out phase. Never did get it going after that.

Getting back on the bike after major knee surgery. Finishing the "Ötztaler" wit less than 3000km training. Not spending all money on bike parts (that was the hardest part)

This was my first season of racing after a 10 year layoff.

I entered 17 races got dropped in two, got two top 10 finishes, one top five (fifth) and the rest were pack finishes.

Actually, I was suprised with my performance - My brother says knowing how to race can makes up for my sub par fitness. :D

I'm looking forward to the comming season since I'll be starting much more fit.
