As an aside, we have a ‘G2MC team kit’ (jersey, bib shorts, wind jacket and fleece jacket) designed by Ian and paid for by a consortium of corporate sponsors. Since I realise that people are not accustomed to seeing me in a colourful strip, I thought that it may be useful to provide a preview of the kit, ahead of the inevitable photographic evidence of me wearing them.
