It is such a cool f#cking race. Sorry to swear, but that's just the only way to describe it.

Jimmy-

Good insight.

Hard to believe that even this early a ten minte lead means anything, though, otherthan everyone is in striking distance.



Where the hell is Francesco?

Not woking is actually busier than having a job, for me. Added to the fact I need to spend over half the time I do have just reading to catch up! Then Boom! Four posts I blew my wad!

Great words again Ned !

I'm struggling to pull myself away from the tracker at the moment Mark Davidson really should be in by now and Clayton is where ?

Just one more cup of tea and a bit more of a stare
