The day started rather early for a bank holiday Monday seeing me down at the Lovelo Sportive start line at approximately 0645 to help out with the set up ahead of their annual sportive which consisted of a 50k, 80k and 100k route. LOVELO SPORTIF - BRITISH CYCLING
As part of the Lovelo Cinelli Race Team we were all out in force to fly the flag and share the Love(lo) whilst tearing up the 100km route. Occasionally being part of this mixed up family has its benefits!

In the evening i took part in the Pednor 5 for Dacorum & Tring Athletics Club (Road Runners) which was part of the Hertfordshire Championship (Veterans). A tough and hilly five mile road race around Pednor / Chesham on what can only be described as broken legs BUT I simply thought of my eight hour rest as a long T1 (transition 1). Despite my ruined legs I managed to dig fairly deep and came in 2nd in my AG and our team took 1st team in the championships. Not too shabby at all.
