Calling Matt Rendell and Ned Boulting ...

I am keen to get an interview on the blog before the season is out and have been putting out some feelers to get one.

As yet Albert Timmer is still more interested in getting a court to decree that I am not allowed within 10 metres of his family or himself. Reason 1, Reason 2

So after Phil Liggett said 'no', I have set about trying to get Matt or Ned from the Real Peloton podcast.

Not only is it the funniest cycling production since this blog, it is insightful and thought provoking and if I give them enough praise they might start returning my email.

Stay tuned readers.. could yet happen.

If you like your cycling leavened with some humour, are you aware of the Velocast?

Could be right up your street.

I'm reading Matt Rendell's blazing saddles at the moment. A very witty and entertaining book so I'd look forward to any interview.
As an aside I've also read Gary Imlach's book "My father and other working class heroes" - another great read. I should imagine he'd also be great to interview (though not sure how he'd feel about being 5th choice for a blog interview behind Albert, Phil, Matt & Ned...)

I see Albert Timmer isn't in the Skil-Shimano team for the Tour of Britain.

Shame - he may never know how revered he is on these shores Wink

Second Gary Imlach's book of his fathers' career. How things have changed in a couple of generations.

Lovely man, lovely family... he is the nearest to a celeb mate I have.

(Especially now that Boulting and Rendell have ignored my email)...

But no matter, plan B is going into action.

HOLD THE FRONT PAGE!

Just got latest team listing from Tour of Britain and Albert Timmer IS in the Skil Shimano team Big Grin

They are now seeking bodyguards who can double as bike mechanics Wink

Short notice, but we should get some banners made up to welcome the great man...
