Re: Kurrajong Classic - 7th August

Rumour has it that Mr Wallman scored himself a 2nd place finish, narrowly missing the victory. Perfect course for the climber! Normally yes, but circumstances being what they were I had to do it in a bunch sprint! How about that! In retrospect I was aggressive on the first lap and after I tried to ...

Re: Wheel Upgrade - Thoughts?

I would buy a pair of HED Ardennes for that sort of money. They use the same wide profile rim as is on all the top-end carbon wheels these days and will therefore feel completely different (and in my opinion a lot better) than all the other options mentioned here. If they made a 32 hole rim I'd buy ...

I had a great time this past weekend, despite the weather. Actually, it may have even been because of the weather that I enjoyed the racing so much. Mudgee's long hills make for interesting racing and the addition of 65 km/hr gusts of cross/head wind and single digit temps meant that both days were ...

Re: Clip on Aero Bars- Any suggestions?

I use the T2+ bars. I think they're a good bet, I've seen them recommended before and would second that. They're very flexible in terms of setup and not too expensive. Make sure you're happy with the wrist position they offer though.

It was a beautiful, cool morning at Dunc today. We had about a dozen riders all up, so split them into 3 grades for a handicap, with C having 5 laps start on B who then had 3 laps start on A. By halfway through the 40 lap race it looked likely that B grade were going to win overall, and that's the w...

I'd take along a bit of solid food as well for a 130 km race. That's a long distance to survive on liquids alone, and you'll have had a lot of energy sucked out of you the previous day.

I'll be doing the same thing on Saturday if anyone's keen, but going through the RNP and then through Stanwell Park into Wollongong and finishing in Berrima. Pace will be easy until Macquarie Pass when it will be full gas up the hill and into Robertson.

Mike's 3rd was an awesome effort.
