Trevor Hall: Elephant racing and Python Wrestling

Nobody took me up on my 2011 ostrich racing challenge, so after a holiday in Sri Lanka I'm thinking that maybe elephant racing might be a more attractive proposition?  As you can see,  I've had a practice run in Thorntons' name to test things out, and discovered that elephants should certainly be able to cope with even larger puddles than we normally get on Romney Marsh!  Alternatively, we could try python wrestling - yes it is a bit scary ...but not as frightening as cycling behind Ratty!

In case you are wondering, I did manage to get in a bit of "proper" cycling on the trip, but this particular machine was a lot tougher to control than it looks!
