  2. 2018 Audax

    Saracen RC Audax 8th April 2018 signing on... I later found out this guy is a retired accountant, and had just 1000 miles from one firm to another and so on.... Sean, Ed and Marilyn, without whom none of this would be possible... pep talk by Sean just before the start/neutral zone... lots of cyclists made it to Raphaels in Evesham... no doubt, looking for the bread pudding... thats an old spoon... Suitabley nourished, on we go... I only managed to take two decent photos at Julies..... apart from the trick knee, great day out!!
  3. Hi All Kev is now out of action for the foreseeable future with a pesky knee injury!! I'm off to see the physio at the weekend , but i'm gonna be off the bike for ages PS, Where are all the cakes???!!! lol

AT LEAST IT'S ONLY DIRTY AT THE HARD END... BIKES EVERYWHERE BEFORE THE START, PLANS BEING MADE ETC... BY THE TIME KEV GETS BACK, THE CAKES HAVE BEEN DECIMATED..... SADLY AFTER ABOUT 25 MILES I COULDN'T PUT ANY PRESSURE ON MY KNEE, AS A RESULT OF TRYING TO BE A RUNNER, (KEV IS WORSE AT RUNNING THAN HE IS AT CYCLING!!!) PS. THAT'S NOT MY ACTUAL KNEE...

  9. Club Skittles Champ...

    IT'S A KNOCKOUT... IT'S PRETTY SCARY WHEN HANNAH SMITH TURNS UP ON YOUR DOORSTEP, AND THRUSTS A SARACEN TROPHY IN YOUR FACE...THINGS START TO GET CONFUSING (FOR ME) WHEN I START READING... "SARACEN ROAD CLUB HILL CLIMB CHAMPIONSHIP" "WHAT!!!" SURELY I'D REMEMBER DOING THAT EVENT!!! I KNOW I'VE BEEN UP ANKERDINE AND HARCOURT ROAD A FEW TIMES...BUT... ....OH, I SEE, PANIC OVER, TURN IT ROUND AND IT'S THE SKITTLES TROPHY!!! YAY!!! IT'S THE SECOND PIECE OF SARACEN SILVERWARE I FLUKED!!! TOP TIP FOR THE 2018 CHAMPS, ONE OF THEM GOES STRAIGHTER THAN THE OTHERS!!!!
  10. TOUR OF WORCESTER SPORTIVE 2017 inc Church Lane, Wyche cutting, Ankerdine, Abberley, Hillside (Martley), Heightington... yours truly... a tad overcast at the start, but not cold, or raining, or even very windy!!!!... Tri legs....probably... feed station at Martley, (the Cliff bars where in the van, and you had to ask, then you were offered a choice... of one...) sadly, no medals, but I did get a cup of instant coffee...
  11. British Camp (easy side) Bromyard (roughly) Harcourt road, (old hill climb course) standard pre ride Kev.... Actual start line, a bit damp and breezy... the feed station...(i like my bananas a bit more spotty, so I had two oreos!!) they were very happy at the finish!!! so was Kev!!!!!

  15. Kev Update

    Hi Saracens I just wanted to post a quick update about recent disappearance...I think I already mentioned about a lack of early season form, I had a string of DNSs, DNFs, last but ones etc, so my cycling has fallen off a cliff, thats for sure, and at one point struggling even to ride to work in double figures, I'm not joking!!! So something had to give, therefore my job and my cycling (my actual life!!!) is all in the process of change... Starting July 1st, Kev has a new job!! Good bye Speeds, hello Bromsgrove Body Shop, thats cars not people!! I've been in the bike trade on and off for the last twenty plus years, starting with Ernie Clements in a tin shack in Ledbury...so it's the right time for a change for me... As far as the bike goes, I'm taking the rest of this year off the bike, (apart from the commute) so I can can get my head around the new job, (and the new me) in my head I wanted to be a brilliant tester, but the truth is, I'm not, and riding to finish last is no fun, trust me, I've done it, and I have had a 4th cat license, but that didnt go too well either, such highlights include leading the peloton down the wrong road, knocking my own teammate into a hedge, getting dropped in the neutral zone, etc... I did win the prime over Hollybush ( the actual prime was on The Camp!! oh well...) So, I'm not going to make any plans, and just go with the flow next year , time will tell!!! see ya around Kev.
