Sean Gerrard, one of Taste Inn Wales's owners is in great pain today - please send messages of support over to our road racing hero. Sean spent 11 (yes 11?) hours on his road bike yesterday on the legendary charity Dragon Ride. This enormous road race covers South Wales, the Brecon Beacons and is a huge feat of endurance for seriously fit people, let alone a food loving, top chef like Sean.
The 'ride' - a word which normally conjures up images of lovely chilled picnics, relaxing summer pootling - actually translates into 206km spent riding on a small, pointy saddle with 3500metres of steep, gut wrenching climbs. He is not feeling tip top today, although his sense of pride should be sky high. Massive congratulations to you Sean from the whole team. It was no mean feat, especially when you consider that 400 riders had to quit the ride, as the route was so hard this year. Respect.
