Peter Hawkins – “if you do the work you do see the fruits of your labours”


Our pal Viktor has been hard at work; it’s not everyone who could do his job, those long hours huddled over a computer screen, day in, day out – checking those Belgian cycling results websites.

Lifting his head only to make another coffee (“sometimes my fingertips tingle with the caffeine“), or to phone me;

“Ed, there’s a boy you should be talking to…”
