After making the trip to Dunmore East, registering and racking my bike I had to pull out after doing something to my back when I went to the car to get ready. I really was in a bad way and would like to thank Simon, Tom, Darren, Karen and Ann Bowes and everyone else for sorting everything out to get my gear out of transition and me back on the road to Dublin. WTC emergency services were brilliant. I managed to get home okay but couldn't move for the rest of the day. A bit better today after a trip to Clinic and plenty of pain killers. 2 weeks to London so it all depends on progress over the next few days. Fingers crossed.
