Mr Tubeguru, I have read your report... bad luck on the Vauxhall Pimlico thing, I guess joint 5th would have been the best you could have managed given the circumstances. That strange blonde woman asked us to help carry her bag, I believe James who was doing the challenge on his own did carry her bag up the escalator and during the brief conversation with us she claimed to be shooting a Porn film later that afternoon! Sorry but thats all the info I have...

Mr Tubeguru, I have also read your report and like a few other teams on the day (inlcuding ours) my commiseration's on the Vickie Line problems.

But I am intrigued to know who were the other two teams that could possibly have "contained members that looked a little slow" :shock:

Oh and at the top of the stairs at Sloane Square the mad blonde woman tagged onto the gathering throng, hoisted her skirt and pulled at her already ripped tights. Shame she wasn't coming on the challenge really :wink:

She would have been quite fun I think.

I can't reveal how I knew you'd be slow :-)

Ric and David probably have a few tales of holding doors open on trains (particularly Edgware Road (H&C) and Vauxhall [although technically they'd shut before even Ric had got there]) I only stopped aching from it this morning :)

Antony the soup guzzling dragon will probably tell you the tale of how he held up the 1603 from Waterloo for his "slower" teammates ....... :D

I would recommend their website (http://icsouthlondon.icnetwork.co.uk/), which should tell you. I can't personally be arsed to look though, as I'm pretty sure Chesham isn't South London :).

Root! U have a gf. lol and my comment about hannah was just that she seemed older. nothing else!

i reckon if u split the ages of tube challengers (maybe forum users) id be in the older half! shocking stuff.
