How do you describe Rob Warner? Ex-world cup mountain bike downhill legend, Dirt columist, Giants longest serving employee and the voice of the 2008 World Cup series, or just that big bloke from Oxford?

Well that big bloke from Oxford has just broken his thumb. This is not big news I hear you say? Well it is, because Rob was just planning a charity hitch hike from Lands End to John O Groats to raise money for some new screen savers for his computer. So with out a fully functioning left thumb (the left is always best for hitch hiking) his plans are in tatters.

Get well soon Rob.
