And in more cycling news: my friend Charlotte, who is currently riding PBP, has just clocked in at Brest - halfway! Along with a whole bunch of other folk I know (& some who were at Brest earlier this morning & are already on their way home).

Allez allez!

(OK I will stop posting now...)

Link for anyone interested in the progress of the 61 ACF Magnifiques as they ride through wind, rain, etc to cover 1200k in 90 hrs - apparently the weather is about as vile as it is here, & Charlotte has said it's "harder than the Brian Chapman". Bloody hell. I guess at least the weather was nice for the BC... (she also said this morning around 8am that she hadn't slept in 48 hrs. I am suddenly glad I'm not there...)

They started Monday 10pm (apart from a handful who took the 84hr start at Tuesday 4am); they need to finish by Friday 4pm.

We've had 2 DNFs so far - one due to illness, one unknown. Plus one major mechanical, but he's got it fixed & is plugging on & well within time.

I am kind of sad I didn't make it. 2011!
