Had the absolute pleasure of joining him for a ride post tour 2011. He was convinced that cav would win the worlds that year and he was right. He also said that wiggo was a cert for the next tour, he wasn’t wrong there either. He was very humble about his own ambitions though and came across as strictly a team member and def not a leader in his eyes, well he’s def a leader and a champion now. The man is a machine - was supposed to be riding Cardiff to Denbigh in North Wales on a tandem with his good lady who couldn't carry on past Welshpool so he just rode the tandem alone, I only rode with him for 20 miles or so but I averaged 22 mph and he barely broke a sweat riding that tandem alone

Wow ,  great post CB , thanks for sharing.  .

I don't think Geraint is elitist like some of them . It reminds me of the time l caught Graeme Obree on his bike . Turned out he had just been for his weekly shopping and was heavily laden.  We had a wee chat nevertheless.  .
