Last nights exploits-I won! Special thanks to Rory at #FridayFun

This is what happened yesterday evening & shows what a decent bloke Rory is at

It’s taken me 50 years to actually win something!

This evenings Charlestown time trial had the prize of €50 to the person who beat their personal best by the most.

Now I take things seriously and I’m competitive – how could I resist!

So, after borrowing my mate Rory’s bike (who incidentally does brilliant kitchens & fitted furniture:, and his skin suit, and his aero helmet, then drinking nearly a litre of beetroot juice before the event, shaving my legs, warming up on the turbo beside the car at the start – I managed to beat my PB by the biggest amount (27:42 down to 26:31). And I came home with the €50

ps I was still a long way off the winning time (I was 9th) who did it in 23:20
