A Tale of Two Bradleys

Once upon a time there was a Pro Tour rider called Bradley who approaching a very important Event was regarded as a contender. It was clear to see he was in very good nick! He had some early season successes and then whilst at his peak he crashed and had to leave Le Tour taking his broken collarbone with him. Bradley was a bit miffed but he was determined not to let it stand in his way and this year is back and most believe stronger than ever. First Brit to win the Tour of Romandie and one of the favourites for Le Tour 2012………

All the while another Bradley was toiling away in deepest Keighley getting ready for the season ahead. It looked a tough one, not least because his disorganised teammates dithered about the makeup of the team jersey. Time passed and Bradley could see the ordering schedule slipping behind. Bradley put extra effort into his Thusday emails but it seemed that he just wasn’t getting the results he wanted. Oh yes, there was some improvement, but it came in dribs and drabs, a medium here, a full zip there…Bradley began to feel the pressure!

Undaunted however, he soldiered on and ultimately  was rewarded with a full team response for what many consider to be one of the most competitive shirts around. The order went in and Bradley’s confidence was high but unfortunately history has a habit of repeating itself!  Bradley  took his eye off the ball (and the road obviously!) and crashed out during the ordering process taking his collarbone with him. Bradley is clearly going to be a bit miffed because as the jerseys become a reality Bradley will only be able to wear his with his pyjama bottoms for a couple of months. Nevertheless, those who know this closet climber are confident he will not take this set back lying down, well only for a few weeks whilst he is waited on hand and foot…. then he will be back in strict training and in the London to Paris Ride those French spectators will need to keep well back from le cote de la rue as Bradley slides.. sorry I mean races past!
