PBP finisher in 2011

Many of you are probably aware of PBP - Paris-Brest-Paris, the 1200K cycling event that has been run in France since 1891 - one of the oldest cycling events around.  It's run every four years, and has a strict set of qualifications that must be met by all starters.  The winning time is usually around 44 hours, that's an average of 16.6MPH!

David Montanaro, one of the Principals of our Sponsor, Pallino Pastaria, is doing the Paris-Brest-Paris bike ride. This is a HUGE event.
