Good job and nice pics JamieL :D.

Brings back memories of cherries and "brugnons" harvesting in Lot et Garonne back when I was an apprentice...

Really like your race reports. Can't make out the club name on the jersey, VC...? I think I'm right in assuming its a UK based club yeh? What cat are you and how often do you race in Europe?

P.s nice wheel upgrade on the car :beerchug:

A bit :smartass: but anyway:

Maybe he's got some new handlebars, and wanst to dial the fit in before wrapping them. Not uncommon. That Conti tub must be a quick fix. They tend to last one ride...

Left turn into traffic on open roads? Really?

Also, majklnajt - we need to see you smiling, man. Always so serious!

Me three. Almost said something but decided that boys will be boys :). But I'm not even seeing a stop sign for the car. Livin' on the edge I guess.

@Kjetil, no he has those handlebars for a long time now. He didnt have anything alse in South Africe so he only had to put the Giro on. Surpisingly it holds well. He says it feels so "plastic".

@ave, my thoughts exactly!! ;)
BTW, he is almost vegan. The only animal stuff he eats are eggs. And a bit of milk in his coffee.

@prendrefeu, dont worry, the traffic was stopped, it just looks scray on that pic :D

Would this be ok? ;)
I couldnt laugh because it was very hard.... :D
