Met a Couple of Sirs who Cycle

Once again, I had the opportunity to go to the Champions of Cyclosport charity dinner. I get to get all dressed up and meet some interesting people. 

Here I am with Julia and Louise and Sir Chris Hoy. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with this man (or his thighs), he's the winningest track cyclist in history. He also has a gold medal or two. Pretty darn good.

I was seated next to this guy, Sir Dave Brailsford. You may have read about him in David Millar's book, or Bradley Wiggin's book or Mark Cavendish's book. Yeah, he gets around. He's also a genuinenly nice guy and had a great time chatting about how much harder it is to negotiate with his daughter than with crazy cyclists. All in all, fun to get dressed up, good food, good drink and amazing company.
