■ With only two days to go until the Ride London 100 cycling race, The Capitalist expressed doubt that Mayor Boris Johnson could complete the entire 100 mile route. However, a source close to the Mayor bragged yesterday that Boris had been pedalling hard when out training earlier this week: “He had a practice run on Box Hill on Monday evening, and zipped up and down – and he has a peleton of friends riding with him.” Besides: “He's got nine hours to do it so he should just about be alright.”
