25 March 2017.
Colin came over to the house with his silver medal and some photo prints for us. He had just done a time trial over in Chelford, and was almost passing out from the calorie deficit, despite having wolfed a load load of Haribo gummi bears as he got off the bike (Eastmond Medicomm could have done a slideshow on high versus low glycaemic-index foods).
We spent and hour or so together over a couple of beers (Brewdog Punk IPA), and our son Simon got to handle the peculiar multisensory silver medal that Colin had won in the Rio Individual Time Trial. Colin suggested that he might go for Tokyo 2020, but that he may combine that effort with focussing on the TT rather than doing a load of track. Let’s see what comes to pass.
In the meantime … GO COLIN!
