Below is a letter that Lisa recently sent in to us explaining how Soreen had saved the day during her Endurance Mountain Bike Ride back in May. Thanks Lisa...
Back in May I entered a 6 hour mountain bike race. The idea is that you just keep going for as many laps as you can within the 6 hour time limit.
After 3 laps without stopping and felt great but decided to stop for food before the 4th lap. I ate half an Energy Bar and headed back out. The fourth lap was, quite simply, 'hell on earth'. I was fed up, tired, cold and had just had enough. I decided to call it a day. Race over!!..
So, I headed into the pits and put on my jeans and coat. I sat there on the ground, in a huff and opened a Soreen loaf that I'd brought with me. I wasn't even civilised enough to slice it. I just sat there, cavewoman like, tearing chunks off it and scoffing them. Yum yum yum.
Anyway, half a loaf later, I felt like Lance Armstrong!!. I took off my jeans and coat and went out for another couple of laps. And only went on to win the blooming race!!
I dare not tell my competitors about my newly found secret weapon!
