Patrick and Tom interviewed by Wall Street Journal sports journalist John W Millar. Positioned 10Km from the summit. Who won?

21/07/2010 Riding with Andy Schleck
Rest day in Pau. Our intrepid Horsham cyclists went training with Andy Schleck, Cavendish, Zabel, Eisel and many others. This was followed by a visit to the Team Sky tour bus.

20/07/2010 The Greatest Cycle Race
The S-Works Tarmac flew out to Pau this morning for its 3rd Continental outing. Patrick and Tom will catch the 2010 Tour de France in and around Pau.They arrived in time to see the finish of stage 16 in Pau.

10/04/2010 Roubaix Calling
The S-Works Tarmac was ferried to Dover today for its 2nd Continental outing. A group of three Horsham cyclists will ride the 98 Km from Dunkirk to Roubaix for Sunday's Paris-Roubaix Spring Classic. Bon route! Pictures can be found here.

8/04/2010 Tiso Delivers
Small Italian CNC machinists Tiso have supplied a new Sereo rear derailleur parallelogram spring for GB Cycles to fit.

28/03/2010 Spring Workshop
With no sign of the broken Tiso rear derailleur being repaired, a decision is taken to fit the S-Works Tarmac up as an all Centaur groupset. A Centaur carbon rear derailleur was purchased, and by swapping the brakes with the De Rosa Team, an all Centaur groupset - apart from the front derailleur which remains Tiso - has been achieved.

07/03/2010 Gorrick Again
A fine but cold day in the forests of Crowthorn could only mean one thing; it's Gorrick action again for Patrick on the Pink Yeti. Gorrick Spring Series Saddle Skedaddle Round 3 in the Open Male category again.

15/02/2010 Pink Yeti Goes 386
Upgrade Fever strikes Pink Yeti for the second consecutive day. Following close on the heals of the racing bar and stem upgrade, the long anticipated chainset upgrade is finally happening. Now well established in the racing fraternity, a double ring race chainset is a must. Long time favourite in the Pink Yeti stable FSA have come up trumps with a two ring MTB race chainset; the K-Force Light 386. This shares the same MegaExo ceramic bottom bracket as used on the Ridley X-Ride SL-K Light and Pinnacle Aeos Carbon TT Neo Pro TT chainsets. Full details can be found here.

14/02/2010 Race Upgrade for Pink Yeti
Following the Gorrick Spring series Round 2, Pink Yeti needs a race upgrade. Long deemed unsuitable, the trail friendly Yeti riser bar is to be replaced with a flat oversize Easton EC90 bar and Easton EC90 bar ends. With a switch from standard to oversize, the stem also requires replacing. A matching Easton EA90 is chosen to replace the Thomson. Full details can be found here.

14/02/2010 Pink Yeti Finally Races
It was Red Letter day for Pink Yeti. After years of solid action as a trail bike, Pink Yeti finally saw race action. Doing what it was designed for, Patrick rode the Pink Yeti at the Gorrick Spring Series Saddle Skedaddle Round 2 in the Open Male category.

05/02/2010 Training Wheels for Ridley X-Ride
Lovely as they are, the 4ZA carbon tubular wheelset is unsuitable for everyday training rides. A spare set of Campagnolo Vento had been used as a stop-gap. Now a Miche/Mach1 wheelset has been obtained from AD Cycles. This wheelset really does go well with the black/red/white colours of the X-Ride. Further details may be found here.

17/01/2010 Reliability Trial Exposes Tiso Weakness
The Land Rover Support Crew were called out to Petworth to rescue the S-Works Tarmac. Whilst out on a Horsham Cycling Reliability Trial, Patrick was stranded north of Petworth on the A283 at Northchapel with a failed rear mech. The Land Rover was guided in by Blackberry and Google Maps. Later inspection of the rear derailleur revealed a broken spring. The Tiso Sereo has been taken to GB Cycles for repair.
