    You'll need a change of medication first, possibly.

    I'd put in a fiver for it. Park it sideways to the track and we wouldn't miss out on a trackside area.

    I'll probably be down on the Thursday. And isn't it 5 weeks? I need that extra week to finalise my extensive training programme

    Looking forward to this year, the family are coming down as well and the boy is in the kids race so it should be fun. Still haven't explained to the wife that there is nowhere to plug hair straighteners though

    I've sorted the electrics in the van now we have plug sockets.

    We will be down on Thursday, Missus want's to be in roughly the same spot as last year, If we're down first I will try and mark out a proper spot.

    How may want to be in it and what do you want in it?

    I'm coming Friday, hopefully avoiding parking on the a303 for 6hrs this time.

    Currently on form, making massive gains on power, moving up the Beastway results and cruising around 100 miles rides for fun.

    The yeti is already setup and tested in "race-lite" mode.

    I currently despise all bikes at present, weather looks nice tomorrow so I'm off for a pootle on the road bike.

    I'm laying off the posh bike so currently most fun to be had was on my on-one, but the whole bending the real triangle so much its changes gear is doing my head in a bit.

    Yes my tent is the same size as last year.

    Except it's full of porridge and fruit pastilles this time.

    Same tent/gay's bow as last time, hope to be down on Thursday.
    Definitely going to go on some bike rides before the big day
    Flapjack and Weetabix for me, and possibly wear a nappy.

    Why not get a straw, you could use it in some form of wacky races style device to deter poor overtakers.

    I'm not really sure what food to go for this year, didn't really get to eat anything last year and the year before i was mainly fuelled by pork products.
