Story of how not to be a good support crew!

You have to laugh (well I did see the funny side eventually).  I went for a ride on the course with my Father who’s now in his 70’s in the support car.  The plan was he was to drive ahead of me, wait at the next possible place on the road, see me ride by and repeat…  He thought it was a great idea to get some photos…

So after 10 mins he is nowhere to be seen.  After 45 mins I ascent one of the big hills a spot my father taking a photo of this rider whom I caught up.  Turns out he’s been following this guy thinking it’s me and got some great photos of him…  In the last photo you can see me just coming in behind this guy, whoever he is (he must have thought my Dad was mad as he kept stopping and taking photos)
