Fantastically I forgot to thank Gav in all this time, even though he did the most for me! Gav provided me with accomodation in Christchurch, and moreover a ride out of Christchurch, without him I would have been in a back packers in the centre of town, and would have been getting ready to go on a bus that left an hour after the most recent devastating Christchurch earthquake struck. Who knows, without him I might not even have been writing these blogs at all.
So thanks to Gav, not only for these, but for teaching me a few things, and for giving me good competition, without him I wouldn't have anywhere near as much fun racing. I still owe you some money. I will have to come to Wednesday worlds next week and pay you back (and try and cling on!).
