So although they claim their news isn't the most important thing this week I felt I'd start with our injured twosome and perhaps add to their recovery by including an interpretation of their own words by Mr Chairman whose comments are, as always, voiced by an actor;

Simon “Tony Martin” Powell comments “Simon continues to mend slowly” which, of course, translates according to Rich as “Simon continues to swim slowly”. Meanwhile Martin “Fabian Cancellara” Darlison says, “setback, in hospital over weekend, beginning to improve not very mobile yet”. Slightly trickier to interpret but fortunately our glorious leader is able to assist as follows - “Martin was feeling left out as he hadn't raced much this year so he decided to get in on the act. After trying to throw himself through the windscreen of a car his injuries were not as bad as Simon's and he didn't need any operations. Realising that his attempt to win Crash of the Year was looking a little shoddy, he picked his scabs and guaranteed an infection! He then one upped Crasher by requiring an emergency operation!” Mr Chairman considers this to be 15 all so far – lets see who wins the next crucial points?

Anyway, onto the more important News!

Geoff Larkin completed his first long distance race, the Bastion @ Hever in 14:48! Geoff would like to thank all the EGTC coaches and his training buddies Tom and Roger – even more impressed with your result now we know who helped along the way Geoff!

Also posting impressive results in Geneva was the EGTC European Championships triumvirate of Fran, Annie and Joan. Great efforts from each of them in their AG's with Fran 13th and Annie 9th in the Sprint event whilst Joan was 17th in the Olympic on Sunday.

I'm sure lots of others were out there racing but if you don't let me know I can't post it!

No Core again this Saturday as Kim continues to enjoy a well earned rest from trying to teach Maurice to balance on the Swiss balls!

As always, Xmas party reminder for Sat 5th December – along with Happy Birthday to Stuart!

Train safe
