I thought I was early last year but I’m even earlier this time! The calendar feed is now updated with details of the 2013 season’s events. Like last, this year you’ll find entries for all the individual sessions
Valentino is back on a bike that should put him closer to [if not at] the front! Sadly Spies loses his Yamaha ride and has ended up with a ride that means he’ll be able to maintain a presence in the paddock, will probably not provide him with much in the way of results. Stoner leaves in typical Aussie style and sticks two fingers up to the sport (like him or not he just wanted to race, nothing more, nothing less). The rookie rule has been dropped simply to allow Marquez to take Stoner’s bike. I truly hope he’s shown a lesson or 10 after his many unsporting incidents in Moto2. Bradley Smith also steps up from Moto2 to join Cal for an all English Tech 3 team. There’s plenty more movement but nothing that particular annoy/excites me!
A while ago I posted about a promising project that sought to emulate a Roland MT32 midi device. Although some time has gone by the project didn’t die but kept creeping along. There’s now a V1 release for Windows that demonstrates just how good things have got.
Please note you need to source your own ROMs (it’s not legal to provide them) to make use of it
Work on the cycling stats plugin has shown how little leisure riding there was over the past 12 months. Hopefully 2013 will be back to the level of 2012. We made the most of the great weather with the first ride of the year.
Distance: 22.781 Miles, Duration: 01:55:43

To celebrate their 15th year anniversary, Within Temptation planned a special one off event hosted at the Sportpaleis Antwerpen, Belgium. I thought attending with SWMBO would be an excellent way to mark our own anniversary of 21 years of marriage this October.
The quality bar was set high as Elements was to be a show similar to “Black Symphony” complete with orchestra and special guests.
