Mule on skins...

Hot from the top of the 'Catwalk' in Verbier, Mule Nigel skinned up this afo... You might remember Nigel - Pies and Thighs fame, he's missing the dust chewing of last years Cape Epic

TT- weekly/ Pedal Revolution Team kick off well...

Mule athlete, Nino Piccoli opened his time trial season with a clear win in the CC Breckland 10-mile time trial, finishing in 22:02, over a minute ahead of the rest of the field including the reigning east district champion. "I'm quite pleased as i've been suffering with a cold for the last 6weeks and done limited training - but I had a mulebar before and off I went ;-)"

Piccoli's TT-Weekly / pedal team scored another win the next day when Mark Arnold won the Classic Hainault Hilly 50 kilometre sporting time trial in Essex in 1:11:46, more than two minutes clear of the rest of the field.

The team scored a further 2 podiums over the same weekend thanks again to Nino and Andy Bason.

Army Mules tackle the Cape Epic 2010...

Tony and Phil in TransWales 09

In March 2010 Army cyclists, Tony Ireland and Phil Marland will tackle one of the worlds’ toughest mountain bike races, the ABSA CAPE EPIC 2010. This is the finale to a years’ worth of endurance mountain bike racing that has aimed to raise awareness and funds for two very worthy charities; Help for Heroes and the Army Benevolent Fund. No doubt you have seen some of the fantastic work that they do for British servicemen and women who are unfortunate enough to be injured serving their country in some of the world’s most troubled regions. Help Tony and Phil to turn the miles into money, visit their fundraising pages at either www.justgiving.com_the_epic_ride_abf (for the Army Benevolent Fund) or www.justgiving.com_the_epic_ride_h4h (for Help 4 Heroes).

Girona or Siberia???

After ditching the bus, grabbing a hire car, yanking on some snow chains and slip-sliding back and forth through traffic mayhem for literally hours, we were only still less than a kilometre away from Girona airport and getting pretty darn desperate. Upturned lorries, cars crashed and abandoned on the side of the road- you name it, we passed (or got stuck beside) it.

So when this here lean, mean snow-shifting machine appeared, lights ablazing, we thought, aha; This is it! Our route back to cilivilisation!

Oh how wrong we were. After turning round and following the slow moving line of cars we passed this beast about 500m further had careered off the road and was on its side with 2 wheels in the air!

After 8 hours of tackling probably the worst driving conditions I've ever seen, we got back to Barcelona.

If it wasn't for hearing the adventures of our new found friend Paul, listening to choice Catalan radio (wahhaa) and of course chomping on some MegaBites, I don't think we would've made it...
