Cyclo Challenge 2009 and the Stealth Samba Band

This year the weather was terrible for the Cyclo Challenge, see earlier post for how lovely it was last year and this post for how awful it was in 209.

I was otherwise engaged so didn't take the pictures showing here but it was my camera so I guess I have ownership:

Muddy and churned up but people waited patiently to go strut their stuff.

This bunch of chancers turned up without a gold sponsor and still managed to blag their way into the opening parade.

Stealth Samba, like Banksy with drums.

Atlas didn't have any supporters so were weirdly happy to have the random samba band.

It was bloody muddy and ruined a perfectly good pair of shoes but it was a hell of a lot of fun.
