“It’s going to be an interesting few days because of the track out here, which is unlike anything I’ve ever come across before,” Rowsell wrote.
“To begin with, it has no roof and is fully open, and then there’s the fact it’s 333m long (as opposed to the conventional 250m). Next, and this is the most interesting part, the track itself is made out of concrete, not wood, and finally, it’s tropical storm season over here, so there’s a good chance of rain while we’re racing. All in all, it’s going to be quite an experience.”"

… so I had to ride home in silence. Apart from that I couldn’t do that. So I rode home singing all my favourite songs to myself. Apart from that I couldn’t do that either (I thought I knew the words to at least half of Eminem’s MMLP2 album, turns out I’ve been tricking myself rapping along).
So I rode home in the dark singing hymns, including hand actions where appropriate.
I’ve ridden past crazy people like me in the past. Sometimes they make me happy, sometimes they make me scared. Now I realise the person themselves doesn’t give a shit, all they care about is whether your anchor holds in the storms of life? When the clouds unfold their winds of strife? When the strong tides lift and the cables strain, will your anchor drift or firm remain?"
