Re: L’Etape Australia 2016 - by Le Tour De France Saturday 3rd December

Can't speak for the others but for me it was, hot and windy and I was glad to see people in the race walked Beloka, because nearly everyone I saw in the ride walked some part of it.

If you want to see some video of DHBC in motion in the race watch this at about 2:11 https://youtu.be/HTw4w_lyi8A

D grade was fast as well I think. I was dropped but still managed 34 kph off the back and I estimate they were doing 35-36 kph. The bunch was faster. It is a flat course but those two sharp turn are a killer if you don't have good power and technique. At the same pace I would have won E grade at Hef...

One point of anxiety with that crossing is the upcoming hill. I think that all of us are keen to not lose speed and get dropped at that point. So maybe if we make that section a neutral zone where the leader must wait for the stragglers, then maybe some of the pressure can be alleviated for the cro...

I enjoyed my first race in 4 months. While giving Michael the chance to get away was unintended, I assumed that the others would go around me; I did think that I could work for Tim to help him get away for third. I was just surprised that he went at a 1,000 meters. Next month I will have to make sur...

The idea of a cup of tea at the top of the hill is too much. I have signed up. Hopefully I will get over the mountain twice! Eight weeks should be enough to get me into some reasonable fitness. It is a good target to work towards. I think I am the only MMAS5 cat rider from DBHC so far. I see there a...

Well done Huw! I hope James is alright.

I think the races must have got national coverage on the ABC News. I was in Canberra for a party and as we watching the news which ended with a film of the races and finished with Huw holding the cup while the credits rolled.

Great for Huw and for DHBC.

I think that it will now be harder for Evans to win the TDF because his team will need to controll the race. I don't know if they have the depth to control it in the mountains. They have a history of control on the sprinters stages but they usually do that in conjunction with teams like Quickstep an...

While I am no sure of Pat Farmer's motivation and at first I rejected this out of hand I have changed my thinking.

Re: cents per litre not percent

On the other hand I was disappointed to see the M7 cycleway. The lighting is a blatant waste in every sense and now backfires on cyclists badly. I have cycled the M7 at least 10 times and still cannot find away to join that cycleway! I think Eugen's comments go to one of the central issues about bi...
