Where to start ? such a busy weekend we're behind on everything here in the office, including the planning for next weekend, who gave Tony the week off eh ? - but I digress !

Here's a link to June's race galleries - which you will see has been pretty packed full of action

Specifically last weekend we saw the following races and events and some don't have a public gallery, but you can go to the website to find out more:

Additionally we also ran the Pic2Go system at the Manx Telecom Cannacord Genuity Sportive  so it's been a busy one - again !!

Within all this business - on the bright side, I have a new desktop background, which I've put here on full resolution if you would like one too. It's about 46miles into the Race to the King on the SDW. Just click on the image to see it full size and then download it to your computer.

I'm minded to take some nicer landscapes for you to use over the next few weeks - let me know if you'd like some !

Also, whilst we were researching locations for the Race to the Kings, we discovered that a)there's been no google streetmapping of the SDW (South Downs Way) - they had the kit from google, but it didn't really work, but also b)you can use the google streetview app with certain 360 degree cameras and create and contribute your own streetviews !
So as part of our own interests (for race planning) and to put something back into the local area, we're going to do much more research and possibly invest in the kit to do this sort of thing and then hopefully be able contribute to the SDW area streetview data - which I know a lot of the events that take place along it will benefit from greatly.

Meanwhile at the Leeds Castle triathlon races
problem with the front wheel too light ?

which way ?

had the smoked haddock for breakfast ?

Someone waving to the front

They wave back

double thumbs up bad ?

just needs a picanse of salt to add flavour

oh no it's stuck

quite a good backdrop really

high fives at the finish

Top teamwork in the relay

REP Arun iron man swim
It's just a step to the left...

nothing to see here

Faye from Steps

and that was the last time we saw them m'lud

Into the washing machine for an hour at 15degrees

and out they come fresh cleaned and rinsed

strike your best catwalk stare pose

pure joy and relief


just a bit too much salt

Tragedy, steps style

'av it

Relief on the marshals faces when everyone gets out ok

those two crazies

and then there was the Race to the King  Arundel to Winchester
All go at the start up to Bignor Hill - follow the King

breathtaking views along the South Downs Way

The climb at Butser Hill

It was a bit steep for some

The crack PR photography team that make the awesome videos

Photobomb !

Pressure to get to the front for a photo, like Trump

nice forearms

picture with the cows ? er certainly.

Volvo support cars followed the photographer to get the best shot

be careful with those last steps

That bling

winners get a bit more bling

The Tyre Lady, on her way to 100 marathons

That finishing Hug reason

the other reason

always careful when playing with a spare sword

let the kids get into the action

I'm a queen and you will do as I say, ok.

Top Team on the course made the event what it is. This is just the finish crew !
So that's it for this week, next weekend if you want to get your celebrity fix, there's a VIP running the Bewl 15 apparently on Sunday, otherwise we have the village fun run here in Hurstpierpoint - scene of one of the olderst fairs in the world - at over 700 years. There's entry on the day, and it goes up wolstonbury hill - which is "a bit of a challenge". Race limit is 200 - so get in there ! (be aware of village road closures). I did very badly last year, and unfortunatley won't be doing it this year - due to other fair commitments...

until next time, don't get too wet in the rain,
