With Christmas fast approaching and thousands of you hoping to dash down to the Xmas tree and find a new Dura-Ace Groupset, a set of Cosmic Carbone Wheels or that ticket to see the Alpe D'Huez stage of the Tour de France, it's my time to wish Seasons Greetings to all readers.
Signing off for a short blogging break, I hope that the bike shaped sack by the chimey stack is that brand new steed you've been dreaming of and that 2012 is full of safe miles, big climbs, long distances, health, fitness and overall - enjoyment.
2011 has seen visits to race-pace.net grow substantially and a heartfelt thank you to you for spreading the word and for your continuing words of encouragement. I was asked what I wanted for Christmas the other day, my answer had a strong cycling theme. Read it here.
I couldn't close the blog without passing on huge congratulations to Mark Cavendish for winning BBC Sports Personality of the Year last night, think that might be a huge turning point for our cycling superstar and a big step on his road to household name superstardom. Well done Cav.
Merry Christmas everyone, peace and goodwill to all.
