NCRA 2014 R3 - Old.......

The perspective - by Rob Weall......
"Are you sitting comfortably, then I'll begin. Once upon a time a load of wannabe Lycra clad middle age men decided to have a go at racing their bicycles, most of these men were going through mid life crisis and thought having a Mistress was too much of a risk of divorce so got themselves some carbon bikes as the cheaper option. After all going out and buying proper motorbikes and having to wear leather baby grows would just make them look silly. I digress, sorry.
 
Off they all go at weekends full of nervous excitement, gels and pasta every weekend, did I mention the Lycra, and have a go. Most of us get around busting our balls and then tell many tall tales about what went wrong and naturally it was never our fault or lack of ability.
 
But then, a couple of guys go out and give the rest of us hope and inspiration for next week. So to Andy and Stu we say well done, there is still hope out there.
 
The End. Rhino Rob sponsored by Pukka Pies."
