STOP PRESS - Stuart "Football Head" Wardle has had to bail out of Trailtrekker 2013 due to alleged injury, which happened when he fell off his static bike in his garage, bruising his ribs, badly hurting his knee and making a large crack in the concrete floor.
His place will be taken by Ben "Marathon Man" Cooper, AKA The Silent Assassin , a twenty something veteran of many endurance events.
Oh well, every cloud's got a silver lining. The team gains a fit youngster and gets rid of a knackered old'un. That's life.
