Between 18-24 degrees - warmer in Pau and then cooled.

Broom wagon was 10 hours.

Strava Suffer Score was 278 - Epic

maybe i need to upgrade to get my suffer score!

10 hours is doable.

Sorry, fucked up the time, 6:57

I was thinking that was quick! Still reckon I'd be 45 mins behind you. What was the cut off broom wagon time?

Might stick that in the diary for next year!

I did the etape pennines on Sunday. 2200m of climbing over 60 miles.

Took me a shade under 5 hours. I have no idea how that would equate to marathon running but at an average power of 187W and 3300 calories burned it was an absolute beast.

Just checked on strava and the etape du tour had over 12000 ft of climbing (double the pennines) and was 30 miles longer. Looks like another level compared to what I did.

Planning the haute alps next year as I will be taking a bit of time off in August. Definitely need to get some hills in for training.

I'll report back after doing my first marathon as to which is harder smile

Always happy for Ed Smalls to join me on a ride should he fancy it....

Good effort smalls

Looking forward to the london Tri in a couple of weeks.

Hopefully some similarly gurning photos of me though my transition

I'm guessing with the obsession with female anatomy that phil opian is the same person or has that already been established?

I really have lost what is going on

I'm doing the etape Pennines next weekend. Looking forward to it. I've started on the epo and roids.

I've got a tiny willy and lots of rage

It's not exactly a great advert for the British work ethic when you get a bit of debris on the track and it takes 1 hour to clean it up. It's worse than Denmark.

I'm going to be a bit boring now, but that was a textbook response. Medical car was there in seconds (which is why it starts at the back of the grid), immediate safety car with rapid upgrade to red flag.

If the lower level of armco is gone (as it was there) and another car ploughs into it, the car could end up going through the lower piece, with the upper level still in place which would then decapitate the driver. I think there has been an accident like that in the 70s

Chilton was fucking lucky if the wheel hit his helmet. Echoes of henry Surtees there.

I've worked at silverstone for 3 years, and they are some of the best marshalls there are in the business.

I've only worked at 1 Grand Prix and 1 motoGP race, but the organisation is tight as you like.

very unusual place to have such a big shunt.

At least the tyres stayed inflated this year.

Bit of a LOL at vettel and alonso running to teacher at every turn.

In the spirit of truth and reconciliation I'd like to apologise to red trousers wearing Oxbridge good egg Benson for suggesting that he sometimes mentions his Oxbridge education too much.

I am of course just jealous because Yale and the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, where I secured my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees respectively, have fallen in the rankings recently.

Apology accepted. Even if factually incorrect

That's my new state of mind smile

Tinder, do people actually use that for real?

As far as I can tell. Yes.

No worries mate, but too much work for me!

I have only ever been me. And I got lost and bored in the alias game.

Maybe people could come clean about who they are, who they have been, and pick one of their aliases for their future self. Just one.

Then you lot can move on. Watching Matt and dermot make up over something that completely passed me by, almost brought a tear to my eye.

What do you reckon the chances of this lasting 5 posts are?

surely a few COUNTIFS on the spreadsheet would be the answer to all this?

What a bunch of thickets.

I'm here more than you think.

Taking issue with the prog credentials, the 90s being 20 years ago. Although I have to admit my journey started on the first thursday in October, 2000.

As for the GU requirements, isn;t that what led us into this mess in the first place.


can i keep my golden age of prog/trance thread 1996-2001???

all i need is the air that i breathe and this thread..

We would be lost without it.

I am now going to find my love groove dance part CDs ad smash out some ruddy dumpling superclassics

the thing is, I think i quite enjoyed this set. It was a while ago mind

Back when this forum started, Bedrock was a monthly party where there was always a "who's going to the next party?" thread, plus constant reviews and plenty of music discussion to get our teeth into.  We have all gotten older, the (UK) bedrock parties are now few and between, and this board has generally become full of shit threads to fill the 6 month gaps until the next Easter party or bedrock birthday gig.

The oood old days.

i'm touched, honoured and surprised by the nominations. A little tear is welling up inside me.

Not sure why it needs to be limited to 2. On my other main forum that I use there are about 20. Mind you they are trying to control about 20000 people. Some of them are open ad honest about being mods, others do it on the quiet. All gets done from behind a 'moderator' super username that they all use.

My vote is for presto. He's a stalwart of the board, and those of us here from the beginning have watched him grow up from a little scamp into the beast of bedrock that he is today.

gonna miss ETC and smalls. After his epic marathon effort last year I signed up to the brighton. I'll tip my hat if and when I finish it.

John's got a point though.
