A nice way to while away a few hours, a good read.

Read somewhere this week that Giant were a little displeased with him as he somehow managed to negotiate a sponsorship deal which saw him get 50p for every Giant bike sold in the UK. That must have paid him out a few bob.

Yes, I read that but I notice he doesn't ride a Giant now so that deal is presumably finished.

Hutchinson gets my prize for the best attempt at making an exciting story out of a complete non-event!

Agree with all the above, a good book and describes the agony of doing this mad event very well. Also some good historical anecdotes on the "event" too. Well worth the effort to read.
