Surprised you've taken the time to notice for a race you have so little interest in
This time last year I was all fired up for doing it until Alan didn't give me a start. But it meant I got to do an ITT the week before in glorious weather and no midges. Anyone thinking of doing an ITT should definitely consider the week before ( don't underestimate the "pressure" of being out there alone although you get great support from the group riders via social media
I've got the pass out, so barring accidents, I'm hoping to be there for the "pressure" of the group start - and try not to be last!!!
