Catching Up

Well there isn't too much going on at the moment, nothing to report anyway. Ulrika Johnsson won Celebrity Big Brother, how she did we'll never know, United are storming away with Ryan Giggs playing the best he has ever played and training for the Cyclo Sportives is going well. I've been doing quite a bit of gym work which has helped me a lot, and did a good loop on Saturday better than expected.

Lance Armstrong managed to survive the Tour Down Under without having heart failure, he did well finishing 29th overall and lead for about 10 seconds on the final lap of the final stage. To be honest I was expecting more, he spent most of the time at the back and I'm worried about him doing the Tour De France. He looks pretty heavy, definately not Tour De France fit. Early days I suppose and I'm sure Tour Of California will test him further.

I will start posting reviews of sportives I'm participating in shortly, starting with the Cheshire Cat.

For all twitterers out there, Manchester has it's first Twestival in February, celebrating the social media pheonomenon that it is, and raising money along the way. Join in the action here.

I also went to Sankeys at the weekend to see Pete Tong. He wasn't as good as when we saw him at the Essential Mix party, bit samey and pretty boring. Sankeys unfortunately has gone pretty pretentious too. No shirts or shoes or you'll get turned away (but wearing t-shirts and scarfs at the same time are ok?! Yeah...ok!). The power of Dave Vincent has gone to his head, why would you want a club full of cloned sheep? Which is a shame because they have some awesome lineups coming up, you just wouldn't want to spend much time in there, it'll piss you off.
