Re: Monday and Wednesday training schedule.

For Wednesday the 31st Theo was saying he'd try and get Alex Sommer down to ride the motorbike, or maybe we could contract Tim or Nathan to ride it for a bit provided they were keen. Otherwise I will get the gate out and run some starts, if we have time we could do both. John/Mr Wallman/Chubbsy do y...

Fantastic news. Now comes the headache of Kimmage having to return that money, Armstrong-style.

Perhaps a better problem to have than this man's:

Re: Monday and Wednesday training schedule.

Tomorrow night I was thinking a warm-up paceline (trying to keep it steady, not a smash-fest), with some 3-up match sprints. This to be followed by either a madison if people are interested, or getting two or three riders together as the rabbits for the rest of us to catch. Hope to see you all there...

Re: The Saga that is Lance

Look at riders like Cadel after he finishes some of the hard mountain top finishes, he is a wreck, yet Lance sometimes looked as fresh as a daisy day after day. This is where my suspicions first started to get aroused. Watching Hell On Wheels and Overcoming you see him on top of a mountain finish, ...

Re: My first track bike

Apparently Goldcross are having a 50% off sale at the moment, it might be worth hitting that up.
FWIW, my Tk2 was my dream bike when I bought it (nearly three years ago now!) and I've only recently thought about retiring it because it's getting a bit noodley. Great bikes!

Re: Monday and Wednesday training schedule.

Patty I'm thinking we can work around the pursuers/paceline like we did Monday night (this worked well). I had a few things in mind but running some starts and doing some timed efforts will work too. I'll try and get there a little after six and we can discuss.
