Whale Oil blogs:
Trevor Mallard has issued a challenge. As is usual for the cripple he has picked the one sport he is good at it (if you can all it a sport) and he has also picked on the wrong person for a challenge.
So Trevor, I accept your challenge
Excellent, and this will give Trevor a real incentive to get back in shape.
Firstly, I need a bike, not just any bike the same bike you use. We have to race using exactly the same equipment. It is only fair. The only difference will be the riders. A Cripple vs a Whale.
Secondly, the race will be on August 15 and I pick 60kms for the distance, if you are going to go, go big.
I suspect there will be a large media contingent following the race.
Thirdly, since you picked a sport that you excel at, it is only fair that there be a counter-challenge and I choose boxing. You mentioned your “fear” of my excessive bulk. I currently weigh 105kg. You stated in the comments on Red Alert that if I got training then I would lose 30kg and you’re are probably right, therefore there should be no reason other than your cowardice for rejecting a boxing match 8 weeks after our cycle race.
I understand that the boxing match will be pay per view, and that all proceeds from the match would go towards helping the recovery in Christchurch.Tags: Cameron Slater, Trevor Mallard, Whale Oil
