    '98, That was I believe the year that I also started the Crackpot. I bailed out at the same railway station as the organiser.

    It was also the year I rode Calais-Brindisi (which is another write-up), finishing a couple of weeks before the Crackpot.

    Shawn suggested I should ride his Hellfire 600 perm over the intervening weekend, which I did (in horrendous weather, having to wade thigh-deep, shouldering the bike, at one point).

    When I started the Crackpot I found that I had only one speed. All ability to raise my pace, such as to follow a wheel, had gone (it took a few months to get that back). But I finished, giving me 42 points for three consecutive events.

    There's a marketing department? Are they putting up blue plaques in bus shelters? So and so dozed here on such and such an Audax...
