Ned tackles the Bec Hill Climb!

We’re late to this party, but #GOSH didn’t Ned do well the other week! Here he is, doing #sufferface like a PRO

He gave it his ALL #wow #commitment

but recovered enough to give @SullimanDan a grin after a bit

No being sick into buckets for our Ned! #professional #TVpersonality #grooming

And look! He came THIRTIETH! Not at all shabby #gosh #skillz

Thanks to @SullimanDan for the top 3 photos. The last one is Ned’s own.

We’ve been getting behind on the old GYNB-ing this week, so here’s a little montage, @matpennell stylee. The ToB so far! Feat. all our favourites. Ned! @RealStephens! Safari parks! Rivers! Grins! Coffee! The MiniMac! #seriousface! #micwielding! And a natty blue jumper or two. Very good!

Thanks to @AltheaAdams_ for the pic of Ned doing INTERVIEWING #gosh

The RETURN of #FanWithTheMan! Lovely @jentoffee and delightful @nethertonboy1 let us borrow their pictures taken with Ned at the Tour of Britain. Very good! #wow We particularly like Ned’s #concentrationface #tonguestickingout and the fact that @nethertonboy1 managed to give Ned a sneaky CUDDLE like a good INBFCer. Excellent work everyone!

Golly! There’ve been a lot of Paralympics, haven’t there! Not as much Ned as we were hoping for, though. We’ve missed quite a few #NedSlots due to REAL LIFE and WERK and stuff #ohno but lovely conscientious INBFCers have been doing their best to keep us up-to-date #thoughtful Top chum @deanlaccohee sent us these delightful screencaps featuring #seriousface, #micwielding and #NedInAction , and we almost felt at home again. Thank you Dean! 

Anyway! It’s the Tour of Britain next, and #RegularNed will replace #RandomNed on our screens. We can’t WAIT. See you there! #tweetalong #gosh #wow

Ned was SERIOUSLY impressed by the Orica-Greenedge bus, wasn’t he. What did he like so much, do you think? The lovely lop-eared wingmirrors? The full METRE of extra space? No, it was the WASHING MACHINE, silly! Imagine never having to rootle around for €5 in coins for the dryer again! No more #launderettemixups with Gary, either! You can see the raw ENVY in his face.

This brought a little tear to our eye. Three go Mad up the Col. Lashings of Coca-Cola, Vulpine Merino Jerseys, #sunburn and #factor50. Sigh.
Make sure you watch Chris Boardman’s delightful video of the merry japes. From lovely @itvcycling website.

SOBER BUSINESS on the Tour again today! #frank #gosh #whodathunkit Happily for us, this gives Ned the excuse to deploy #seriousface while standing in front of a team car #collectorsitem Hooray!

Another rest day! So soon! How can we cope? As @ffflow put it so eloquently, ‘Can’t they have an evening crit or something?’

Ned interviewed LIVING LEGEND @thejensie tonight! #gosh #chops Jens was SO delightful and witty and intelligent and entertaining, we ALMOST forgot to pay attention to Ned. Thank goodness we have the screencap to fall back on! It ENTIRELY escaped us that Ned was wearing a DIFFERENT SHIRT this morning #blimey #costumechanges #ladygaga And those ARE the #cutoffs, aren’t they? We’re sure they are #happy

Ned. By a bridge. In the sun. #sigh Lots of our favourite features here, spotters! #tanlines #factor50 #hipsnap #pout and could those be the #cutoffs, too? 
Slightly disturbed that Gary seemed to be wearing this shirt yesterday, though #launderettemixup
