Great Article Gaz,

You have inspired people all around the world.
As you continue to do what many of us have told ourselves is not possible, you prove us wrong. In so doing we see the truth and can make our first steps to recovery and a better life.

Thank You and Merry Christmas from Andrews, SC, USA

Bloody hell mate. I’ve only just found this blog. I did wonder why we hadn’t heard from you for a while.

I’ve just sold an I-magic. Great arn’t they!
I used to have a real love hate relationship with that Mnt Ventoux real life dvd.

I went arse over tit in Jan several times myself depite using a MTB. Those icy roads were lethal wern’t they! (Thankfully i’d always put my body armour on so I was never hurt.)

I hope you’re now fully recovered.
