Meanwhile, Back Home in Ickham…

We’ve walked past it so often – on the way back to the Coach House from The Prince William.  Even climbed the back fence to take a short-cut over the fields. Often wondered what it was like inside…  OK – so it was the DUKE William…  Jeez – I hate it when he’s right!


This Might (Not) Help…

A short video of the 2007 Iron Tour – ‘Nicko’ features – and this is JB’s Team: McDonalds… I could listen to her for hours!  There is also a translation of the Iron Tour Concept page here…


He’s Fit to Race – and he will Need To Be!

He has been offered a start in the Iron Tour – and that’s a big enough deal to cancel Lausanne… But it also means a few changes to a tight itinerary.  The race is on both Saturday 30/8 and Sunday 31/8 – which will mean a night drive from Pierrelatte (near Avignon) north through France to Paris Gare du Nord – then a EuroStar dash under ‘La Manche’ to London’s St. Pancras Station. Finally – a tube under London to Heathrow – to catch a noon (1/9) flight to Helsinki.  As you do! 


Very Clever – Rupert…
