Sticky Front Wheel

J the B's picture

By J the B - Posted on 02 July 2010

Found a good picture of me from the Marathon-Photos site. At about 5kms from the finish, I overtook someone and collected a large stick in the front wheel. Lots of crunching noises and bits of stick flying through the air, and somehow, I smashed it to pieces and kept on going. Got to the finish and found a large section of stick still threaded though the spokes - you can see it in the photo. And when I think of what could have happened...

Most of them?

I looked up nonce on Wiki and there a couple of meanings. I like this one.

"a number or bit string used only once"

The other is not very nice.

Can we change nonce to 'dooly' perhaps

nonce: paedophile paedo pervert twat pedo gay queer wanker homo pedophile peedo nonse chav rapist kiddy fiddler child molester

...but I was going so fast, the skinned peeled off my face. Smiling

It is definitely me, though: who else rides with home-made neoprene elbow guards?

And yes, I confess that my saucepan-blast-helmet doesn't attract the murmours of awe and respect that I thought it would (my superhero aspirations sadly crushed), but who are you, Mr Bloot, to talk about wacky jack avatars?

Looks like the you've given the gob a trim to JB.
I guess it adds to the aerodynamics and streamlines your race figure.
