The morning was pretty vile – alternating light and heavy rain – it was with something of a heavy heart that I set off in a downpour to the Hemel 10, over by Leighton Buzzard.  I took a somewhat circuitous… Continue Reading →

NBRC Club 10, F5u/10, 30/7/08

NBRC Club '10'; 25/6/08 F5d/10

Not the most auspicious way to get to a club event – I returned from London at 7pm, discovered there was no electricity in Aspley Guise (it eventually came back on at 3am the next day),jumped into my skinsuit, pumped… Continue Reading →
