I have never ridden alongside Sir Alan Sugar but most Sunday mornings I am beside Pa as we make our way back up to Clonmel at the end of a hard training spin and I know that if I am as strong as Pa is on a bike at 62 years of age I will be a very happy man indeed , whether I am a millionaire or not !
