Watson’s Gap Jump

I’m back from the mediterranean warmth of the Channel Islands and am now adjusting to the autumnal chill that seems to have descended on Manchester. There’s more on my travels on this page. Oh and it’s spawned a few new wallpapers, click here to take a peek.

I’m still catching up on what’s been going on since I left. I should be used to the vast amounts of the e-mail that seem to land in my inbox while I’m away and reading this doesn’t make me to cheery. Anyways, here are a couple of new things worth looking at.

First up , the below picture is the real thing. It’s a video capture from Dave Watson’s Tour de France peloton leap and can be seen in part in the video link (right click and save target as) available here. It’s from the forthcoming New World Disorder IV video, ride the lightning, that should be available by the end of the year.

Meanwhile it’s probably not come as too much of a surprise to see that Welsh star Nicole Cooke has claimed the world cup title, the full report can be found here and there’s more over at cyclingnews.

I’m a big fan of Thomas Frischknecht. The guy is an old school mtb’er who is still showing his talent. It’s good to see that he’s added a new set of rainbow stripes to his record of achievements. You could say that man has a good reason to smile.
