I want to thank everyone who has read, commented and tweeted on and about the blog over the last 18 months. It's been great to make some new friends and to share my writing and views with you. I've had some great support from many of you via the blog, twitter and even from within the world of professional cycling.
I may be back for the Vuetla in late August if I decide a re-vamp and a bit of re-direction will help put the blog firmly on the map.
