Team Cycling Plus' Howie creates a movie...

Howard discovers Xtranormal.com – is he the next Nick Park?

For those of you that haven't seen it, or own a Mac and therefore can't use it, www.xtranormal.com is a free web download that lets you create basic cartoons. As it says 'If you can type, you can make movies...'. Howard Johnson of Team Cycling Plus fame can type, and has made a few little films, including this one in which the editor of Cycling Plus – who is much more handsome in real life – interviews Howie about his year on the team.

Editor-in-chief Rob has been pedalling Cycling Plus since 2007. His first proper road bikes were a Raleigh Sprint in the early 1980s and then a Trek 1000 in 1999. A former competitive runner, Rob has repeatedly threatened to become a competitive cyclist in every discipline from time-trailling to hill climbing to bike polo. We're still waiting.
  • Discipline: Road. Mainly commuting but with the occasional mountainous sportive that he'll complain about/fail to complete. Enjoys cake stops. Will never, ever do another triathlon after a bad experience in open water.
  • Preferred Terrain: Gently undulated roads – he's more of a rouleur. Likes gravel.
  • Current Bikes: BMC Alpenchallenge, Viner Perfecta, BMC Granfondo GF0, anything shiny that Warren Rossiter will allow him to ride
  • Dream Bike: Bianchi Specialissima, Raleigh Banana
  • Beer of Choice: Innis and Gunn Original
  • Location: Bath, UK
