So a week of training in wonderful Majorca with Geoff, Fern, Mrs J and a certain Mr Wiggins.
What can I say?
We rode lots, enjoyed the sun, caught a massive hail storm as we climbed Coll de Femenia, all improved our times up Sa Calobra, bumped into Wiggo.
Oh and that boy can climb. Geoff Beetham I mean, I wilfully hung with him as long as could and just as my lungs and legs felt like they were going to burst, and I felt the need to come down a gear i’d see him shift up to the big ring and pedal off into the distance.
After Majorca, we got home at 21:00, packed the kit for the Wiggle Enduro 6, finally got bed at midnight only to be up 05:00 the next morning and off to Catton Park.
The sunny Majorcan miles instantly started to pay off as my teammate and travelling companion Joey P, and I came a very creditable 14th out of over 100 in the Male Pairs.
And Geoff and Fern guesting for DirtWheels Cycles took 1st place in mixed pairs.
Add to that Nicky and Jane winning female pairs and DWC bringing a good fun party atmosphere to the event and it really felt like an extension of the holiday.
