I was very happy that the popular cyclist Mark Cavendish won the prediciious BBC Sports Personality of the Year. This can only be a god thing for cycling in general. Let's hope that it gets more people to buy a bike and get out an enjoy the sense of freedom it brings. We can also hope that governments do more to make cycling safer.
Yes, I am very happy for Mark Cavendish but I was slightly disappointed that there was no mention of me competing in the 2011 Brompton World Championships. I mean, I am a world class international athlete who has competed at the highest level! Come on! Does Mark Cavendish colour coordinate his outfit the the colours of his bike? I suspect the answer to that is no.
