Do we have to call him Sir Colin yet?

Nice one chap. Those rainbow bands suit you I reckon.

:oops: :oops:

Thanks!!

It's been a great year and preparations of this have gone well. Weather conditions were a little scary with rain and harsh winds leading up to event but it stayed dry on the day making the very technical course easier to handle.

Won by 12.5 seconds over the reigning champion. Couldn't be happier as this was my goal all year. Next up is the road race on Saturday!!

He's got pretty severe cerebral palsey. Looks ok but he lacks coordination.
