I can't wait for his time to appear on his "website" ...

Sigh... it would be tiresome to allow him to attend Z1 and then have to put up with him ALL DAY.

Ah no.

Because he is apparently going to go off and start at Notting Hill Gate, because that's where the best routes start from apparently.

And we're all geeky for going down the pub afterwards.

Has ******** not graced us with his presence on a zone 1 challenge day or tube relief?
I did turn up at one of his "invites". He wasn't there

Sorry - one of his "invites"?

Do explain further.

He asked people to come along for one of his challenges. I did for an ALC- he was starting at Green Park- anyway he didn't show up, quelle suprise.

I see this has now appeared on his tube challenge "website":

This site and the attempts are seperate from the guinness attempts but posible succeeds will be sent to guinness to confirm our times.

His problem is that he wants recognition for being fastest but refuses to go through the official channels - a trend that runs through everything he does it would appear.

This could be because he's imagining that he's using non-public transport between stations.

He claimed to me in an email that he only used public transport.

We await the response from Guiness with interest.

By the way, he wants to meet us all before Z1C next Friday. That would be a laugh if it happened ...

Yes! Then we can all tell him to SOD OFF!

No, wait. While I am theoretically available before my 2:30 exam on friday, it would be inadvisable for me to show up...
