I know it not the type of sport that's traded much if at all but just wondering if their was many other forum users who actually follow cycling?
I'm sure i remember Aberquey once saying he was a fan?

Yes cycling is my main interest though not really traded it but followed it over the years and many trips to Majorca cycling. Is beautiful scenery when you get up in the mountains.

Majorca, fad Imo :P . competing in the local KOMs is enough for me (built up some pretty strong rivalries over the years) - & plenty of Zwifting alongside. GCN fills me in on da racing news, cba to pay for Eurosport. Maybe I should try find a cheeky livestream

Yes I usually follow the grand tours but have never even looking if its possible to trade cycling. My claim to fame is that I once competed against Chris Bordman in his local 10 mile time trial. When he came past me it was as though he had an engine on his bike.

He was one of the best time trialists in the world at the time, and I remember thinking there are not many sports in the world that its possible for a complete amature to match himself against.

If you ever get the chance one year i would go watch the National Hill Climb Championship or something similar. Usually around October time. They are really lung busting efforts. Is a good athmosphere and the crowd really get behind the riders.

Thats awesome stuff. Remember your time? Also did you have power data for the ride?

No idea of the time this was a long while back, over 20 years if I remember correctly. Can't even remember where the course was, I wasn't driving and fell asleep on the way there lol. Did see a sign for Chester at one point though so was fairly close to there I think. Boardman I think lived on the Wirral at the time, for all I know he still does.

Didn't have power data either, not sure if the pros even had it back then, although if it was available I'm sure Boardman would have had it he was really into all that kind of stuff. The peleton used to call him the professor because he was so into new technology and training systems.

Absolutely, extremely exciting racing, lets hope the tour de France is just as good.
