  • Misadventures- while you’re waiting
    Just saw a meme on Facebook that I thought you’d all giggle at because it’s so true, especially Nigel 😜 – Went to the bike shop for a patch kit, left with 2 bikes, a multi tool, 4 water bottles & socks – 😂😂😂 Not much else happening outside the Exp Africa bubble. I’m hiding in the house with the curtains drawn from the canvassers, Dumolin stole the ITT stage win & the Magila Rosa from Quintana (by almost 3 mins!) oh & I think you all missed something off your necessary items kit list for the race – a...

  • Gowan the Irish
    Well lads ye are playing an absolute blinder. Yer planning sched on and off the field is paying huge time saving dividends, more power to ye. Savage stuff Taryn & Co. Keep ‘er going now, the hardest climbing is hopefully well behind ye. A day and a bit to finish if not less....
  • Team Misadventures
    Just watched the video of Day 2, no cameos this time round 😜 But it looks awesome, hope you all take an opportunity to stop, look around & take in the epicness of what you are achieving – although you’re only allowed to stop for a second, you’re in a race after all 😂😂...

  • Misadventures- Watch out for …
    So how’s the big outdoors going, enjoying it? I’m not convinced on this outdoors malarkey. I was attacked by a metal gate at my beach boot camp at the weekend & now have a lovely bruise that is getting bigger & blacker by the day. So in my opinion you have to watch out for the stationary inanimate objects, they’re way more dangerous than the wildlife 😜 Keep safe!!!...
  • Misadventures
    Taryn et al you’re motoring.. keep it going you’re doing great , through that tricky bike section now and flying..hopefully plain sailing home ..enjoy xx...
  • Misadventure on the drive
    What a race you guys are having, the sleep after the trek is working well, hammering around that looooong Mtb. Keep her lit now as they say…heading for the coast, ye can smell the finish….go Misadventure…chris...
  • No Misadventures Today
    Great going folks, looks like the rest last night is paying off and you timed the tricky nav well. Others ahead of you lost 4 hours on that river crossing while you were banking sleep. Now, make it count. Looks like a nice decent from that stage for Denis to test out the new bike…...
  • 2 Days down….
    Morning team 😃 Just checking in & can see you’re on the road again. Hopefully you’ve rested up & got lots of food in you for the next stage. 2 days down & as Nigel would say ‘sure it’s only round the corner..’ 😂😂...
  • mornin’
    Team 17, you headed off with some speed there, one just goes to catch a few winks and a few hours later you are like halfway through the map! Did Taryn pack her whip or something? Oops sorry Taryn, didn’t mean to out you there 😉...
  • Grab a nap Misadventures
    Night team, off to bed. Looks like you might be catching a few well deserved zzzz’s as well Rest up, fuel up & then get out there to kick some ass 😃 Oh, & in case you were wondering, Quintana is in the Magila Rosa in the Giro (ITT tomorrow, only 28 secs on Dumoulin so all to play for!!) & Kittel leading in the Tour of California. But sure I’m not a cycling fan 😜😂...
  • Misadventures
    Great going so far lads, ye’re rockin through it. Great times on all of the legs. Hope that ye’re treating the Rebel well !...
  • Misadventures
    Go team misadventures!! Well done Denis and team! That Dot is moving… Keep it up....
  • Misadventures

  • Go Misadventures go!
    Your doing very well team Were very proud of you Dad We miss you Dad Sally xxx...
  • Misadventure

  • go on, go on, go on, go on, go on.
    Can’t say it better than Ms. Doyle. When it’s all done, just imagine how good a cup of tea is going to be?!!! J&J&P xxxxxxxx...
  • Misadventures
    Rest day in the Giro today so no highlights to watch, you have me watching the dot all evening – aren’t you lucky 😜...
  • Misadventures
    Just realized you all missed the Eurovision! Shock and horror! Im sure you are dying to know that a cute socially awkward Portugese guy won with a stylish lovely song! Ireland never made it and the UK I forget what they got, but you can rejoice as Hungary came 8th! Thank God I remembered to watch it for you to keep you updated… 😉...
  • Beat that darkzone!!!
    Oh the stress here, what are you doing to us??? Looks like you’re cutting the CP21 darkzone pretty tight…...
