The Cross Legends event is probably a dim and distant memory for you in your active life. However, it still looms large in my great memories of the summer. I know there are many fathers to any great success but undoubtedly you were central in the extraordinary logistics and management of the event during the week. I thought yourself and your absolutely charming daughter were beyond exceptional. The accommodation, the outriders, the route planning, the massages, the breakfast lunch and dinners and teas to mention but a few of the essential and complex items that to be delivered to the hungry cyclists, were all wonderful. I suspect your daughter doesn’t realise that in fact she became the face for all the cyclists of so much and she was charm personified.
A big thank you to you all.
