Crystal Palace photos

I was too tired to race after Sunday's efforts so I took some photos instead. I'm getting a bit obsessed with cropping photos to a 2:1 ratio, that's a habit I'm going to have to break....

Cyclocross Season, here we come

The road season is over and the cross season starts now. Well, not really, but that's how it feels. I've gained enough points to hold onto my second cat road license, and today I put in the order with Cannondale for two complete 2010 CX9 Ultegra bikes. The spec looks pretty awesome - CX9 frame, EC90x fork, Shimano 6700 shifters and mechs, FSA BB30 SL-K cranks etc etc. Now it's just a case of finishing off my tub wheels and getting gluing, and I'll be ready to race. First proper race is September 20th, that's loads of time, right?

Watch the Ventoux stage in London...

And raise money for a good cause. Sounds like a cool day out, and rent-a-pro (lol) Dan Lloyd from Cervelo is going to be there to auction a jersey and raise even more cash.

Hove Park #4

I drove down to Brighton on Friday night and came fourth, saving my second cat license for another year. It was wet and windy, but a good race nonetheless. Brighton Mitre do a good job down on the south coast.

How to go down hills, with Mr Fabian Cancellara

It's not rocket science is it? You just pedal like buggery when you get a chance, and lean the bike over as far it will possibly go round every corner. Job done.
I think Fabian was having some fun for the cameras on this descent, there's some pretty OTT cornering going on, especially when he gets back to the bunch at the very end. Impressive nonetheless.
