I seem to have scored a point. According to the officials I finished 9th at Hillingdon last weekend.
I’m fairly certain I didn’t but I’m not going to complain about my one point’s worth of recompense for the season thus far. It’s a fair irony that I score my first point through administrative error rather than a glorious dash to the line.
In other news I’ve just ordered a new SRAM Rival groupset for my pink and black Giant T-Mobile frame, so I’ll be flogging off a 105 nine-speed triple groupset on Ebay when it arrives. I’m torn as to whether it’s going to be easier for me to get either Condor or Cyclefit to mount it onto the bike or whether to do it myself. Having spent two hours last night trying to adjust the rear derailleur on the Merckx to deal with swapping the wheels back to my Mavic Ksyrium Equipes, which are different to the Fulcrums in terms of alignment, I’m tempted just to let someone who knows what they are doing deal with it.
Tomorrow I might head down for a lap of the Hovis Freewheel event in central London. I signed up for it ages ago and forgot about it. I suppose I should head along as there’s meant to be 38,000 people signed up for it. Nice weather and free sandwiches are promised as well.
