That was a time trial, and when he rode there was 40 mph cross winds, which died down a few hours later. He wasn't top 10 last Sunday

That's impressive stuff WestCountryGirl. 

I've only ever 'done' a pumpkin once before. Mine looked a little like this;

Hellraiser Pumpkin (Helena Pugsley) Tags: halloween pumpkin jackolantern  pinhead thechallengegame challen… | Pumpkin, Pumpkin halloween decorations,  Pumpkin stencil

 

I failed to win any prize in the competition that it was in, but the waiter at the restaurant I was in, informed me that all the staff (bar the manager) liked my pumpkin best. That was good enough for me.

That is very creative and indeed quite scary, which is what a jack-o-lantern really should be I think.

I love the one day races and the grand tours. 
 

Hugh Carthy has got a great chance. Not sure if the race will make it to the end or not.

I see where you are coming from, but no, I didn't. This happened a very long time ago. A time when I didn't even know of the existence of efestivals. 

Hang on......there was a time before eFestivals?  😯

Today in Melbourne we had our first double donut day in months - zero new cases, zero deaths. At our peak on one day in July we had a similar number of cases to the UK. Today our 14 day average is under five. The premier has copped loads of shit from the Murdoch press and the national government, but the hard lockdown has paid off. 

Tomorrow is my final day in a job that has been making me miserable and I start a new one in my preferred field a week tomorrow, so I have a week off. 

And to top it all off the pubs reopen on Wednesday, the first day of my inter-job break 😎

That’s terrific! Love them, very original 

Thanks both - and thanks for all the likes, folks! I'm glad you like it :) I've got another pumpkin ready to go but I'm stumped for any ideas of what to do with that one!

Well, if you need any suggestions!

I could do with a training session ... I’ve just got mine ready to go .... let’s see if I can come up with something relating to Halloween and the forum 😷

That might be a little ambitious ... I wonder if we have any other pumpkin carvers on here ? We could do a little comp :) .... although that bar has been set incredibly high ...
