(Directions)

 

So let’s go straight over to our man on the spot, Phil LeGit for this next stage in this year’s tremendous Tour de Coast. Phil we gather there’s been a bit of tour controversy?

Phil: Hello Gabby and yes, sadly for this year its tour over for the great man of the mountains, he of the phenomenal argentinian beef thighs.

Gabby: Reall, Phil so what happened?

Phil: Well Gabby its not quite clear at this moment but Marcial set off in good spirits and his suitcase of courage I can tell you was well and truly packed. He was riding south from Berwick wearing the famous yellow tour shirt and then, well we will keep you posted as news comes in

Gabby: So what about Gaz, is he still in the race

Phil: Very much Gabby, he had a great day, tough to start with a long pull out off the start. He hit the border, almost literally to get a camera shot and the ride from North Berwick he described as a dream. I caught up with him right at the finish

Phil: So Gaz, looked good out there today

Me: Yeah, real shame its tour over for Marcial but he will come back next year stronger for it and then we will see the real Boo come to the fore

Phil: But you went well today?

Me: Almost perfect Phil, sun out in front and a easterly wind on my back

Phil: So the tall sunflowers were standing to attention to salute the majestic military procession of the peloton?

Me: Not quite Phil, this is Scotland. No sunflowers here mate! Hey last orders, you gonna get the beers in or what?

Phil: Any trouble in the climbs today?

Me: Well there was one coming up and out of Pease Bay. It was a pig of a climb, so I slammed it into bottom gear, put head down and really pushed it

Phil: Good man, that is what the Tour is all about. Under pressure, hard long miles in the saddle, feeling knackered, tough climb ahead – that’s where you really find your strength to go on to win a tour

Me: No, you misunderstand. I put head down, got off and I really pushed it up the hill.

Phil: Er, thanks so back to you Gabby

Gaz
