Brett “Brian Camembert” Green
The only other member of Le Tour de Mercredi to have completed the Etape before, Monsieur Camembert (so named owing to his contributions to the peloton) will be getting a head start on the rest of us, since he finished in the first 2,000 last time.
Tony “T Bone” Donaldson
Tony is the Tour de Mercredi Stuntman, being single-handedly responsible for 80% of the 'clipless moments' suffered on the Wednesday Tour.
The most recent convert to the two wheeled fraternity, Tony has a mountain to climb in training before even approaching the four on the Etape, but he'll get there.
Andrew “Mr Lover Man (Shabba)” Love
Self-confessed hill hater, Mr Lover Lover, Boombastic etc etc will have to get his cranium in order before next Summer if he's to have a decent day. He was looking forward to the descents until the Rhino cruelly posted You Tube video of the descent from the Croix de Fer. We're hoping to be able to find him by the time we leave for France, if he comes out of hiding.
"Polka Dot" Sam Worsley
Single handedly responsible for keeping the replica cycling jersey market afloat in these difficult economic times, we hope that the Polka Dot jersey will not be too much in evidence next Summer. Climbs well for a big lad.
And look what a great photo I found!!! Gotta love Facebook.....
Phil 'Filippo' Lewis
A new member of the Tour de Mercredi, the only picture we have is of him negotiating the rush hour traffic. Moo-ve over Phil, and spend the time between now & next Summer getting yourself as unfortunate a reputation as the rest of us.
