Is Nashy in the race too now?

Just in from the tipline:

A football mad cycling enthusiast is getting ready for a big charity bike ride in memory of his brother.

Stuart Nash, of Cowley Road, Ribbleton, Preston, is set to cycle from Deepdale to Ibrox, home of Glasgow Rangers FC, in memory of his brother Daniel, who died at the age of 12.

Stuart, whose dad Simon is the Deepdale Duck mascot, will set off on the 190-mile three-day journey on August 20, to raise cash for Derian House where his brother spent time more than eight years ago. Log on to

The story must be true, it has Stuart Nash, and a Duck and cycling! Looks like I might get to beat two Labour MPs…well…one MP and a mascot.
