no whey

You'll recall that back in the halcyon days of cheese racing, when we were featured in Kerrang! and harboured crazy dreams of one day becoming a proper viral internet sport thing like extreme ironing, Andy and I did a couple of radio interviews on a couple of regional radio stations to promote the sport. Well, things have gone a bit quieter of late, but there seems to have been a recent resurgence of interest in the noble sport. Maybe people can't afford to swan off to Magaluf any more and are having to staycation in Bognor or Rhyl instead, and need to liven up the long wet summer evenings with some outdoor activity, and keep warm at the same time.

Anyway, whatever the reason, Andy appeared on Gold Radio this very morning to big up cheese racing, just in time for the start of the summer season. If you click on this link to Paul Coyte's breakfast show and navigate to about 1:41 or so you'll hear a brief interview spreading the good news to a whole new generation of cheese racers. The powers that be decided to exclude Andy's normal radio sidekick from the airwaves; I can only assume I was deemed too radical, too subversive, too downright dangerous for public consumption first thing in the morning. You don't want to be having a nice bowl of Sugar Puffs and a cup of tea and have some maniac bellowing PISS out of the radio at you, I suppose.

Textbook YouTube cheeseracing action can be seen here, here, here (in a toaster oven!) and here.
