Odd concept - isn't Xmas the time of year one is supposed to put on the weight to train off afterwards? :wink: :)

Its now 93% rendered (two days on the old PC!) :wink: Then I will have to try to jog rather then walk through it all...

looks like the text is wrong (I call it Part two but its part one) Part two will be a lot harder then this ride!

I noticed some new downloads in the list pane on that screen shot Phil.

How many have you produced that we should be able to purchase in the future?

at the very last minute the Raid Part one finally finished rendering (2 days + another 2days rendering it the wrong size) its bigger then last years ride at 45GB but seems to run ok on the 2year old i7. Will render part 2 when Im back next week & then start burning some disks & checking it out.

Im off now to film actually inside a Ironman race which will be a first, will also be filming a very long BluRay while Im there that will be cool for any cyclist, a bit like Nice (once out of Nice)....Thats all if I can get past the Ryanair SS guards with all my stuff :?

Oh come on....go grab the remainder of the 6 pack, buck up, and finish up the Jau. We need some "max slope 63%" info boxes to spice up the ride!

its too late I already did the boxes before I started on the beers, but Im almost certain this Chimay blue that Ive found in the fridge (only a 4 pack but its a bit strong) will result in something to find!

Any Chimay is just wonderful and probably the only proper liquid to have in one's bidons while riding the LBL RLV, but it doesn't sound quite right to edit a Pyrenees ride on it. Isn't some red from the region necessary to do that in the right mood?

Hi Phil,

Have you finalised this ?

Can hardly wait for the release :D

Do you know if the Tourmalet and Stelvio downloads will be released any time soon ?

Thanks
