Chuffing 'ell, that's not a race report; it's a book! I wonder what took Chris longer, completing IMNZ or writing the book?

Great book though Very Happy

Where was Tony's IMCH report, that is a classic. Come on Toyota stick it in here and then let Paul L manage the list.

My race report is now ready, it's 10 megs as a word document so I'll try and stick it in a single blog post. 14 pages of word doc including pictures, it's not really epic, just a huge thought dump.

If I make IMUK 2007 (and finish), I'm tempted to go for the minimalist approach. Something like

"Trained a bit, woke up, got wet, turned the pedals for six hours, stretched my legs, got the t-shirt/medal and fell asleep". Less is more.

It's been done mate, Big Bopper did a minimalist report before it was fashionable. Very Happy

look mate, when did I ever claim orginality? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but if the truth be known, I had completely forgotten that the Chairman of the Eric Clapton appreciation society had penned such a posting in the long, distant past.

PS (to AndyS) Best of luck on Saturday if the back gets better, and get better soon if it doesn't!

These reports are great. I was suffering from a bit of a lack of enthuism. reading these has given me the kick up the arse I needed.
