I want to start tonight with the sad news that Jez had to abandon his record attempt today. A couple hours ago Jez wrote on Twitter: "Dear Friends - I m very sorry to say we abandoned due to my dreadful hotfoot - agony for me sad for our great team and supporters. :-(" I feel very sorry for Jez and his team, especially after all that hard work and preparations, and hope that he and David will have better luck next time!
From cycling we go to the motorised world. The Ileach Newspaper has uploaded a new video taken during the Islay Show of this year. As you can see for yourself the Islay Motor Club has some very active members who have some beautiful collectors items too. I'm sure you will enjoy this one!
