Friday 18th RNP Wollongong Mt Kera

I'm visiting Wollongong tomorrow (Easter Friday) so I'd thought I'd ride down and catch a few extra hills. I'm riding one way, but nothing stopping you riding home

Flexible on start time, not too late

Re: Team Time Trials - 19th July 2014 at Nowra

Looking at fielding 4 masters teams, however we have an uneven number of riders.

If there are any other male master riders that are interested, could you please PM me your email address

Cheers Mike

It's your dads fault for not delivering a Y chromosome

Jokes aside, is the problem actually the bag or how its packed? If it's the bag, then what kinda back support do you need?

Simon, James and i are working on matching up male riders of similar speed.

Adam, Rob and any others, could you please PM me your email address, age as at 31/12/2014 and a description of your racing.

Hopefully we can get even teams, which makes it more fun

Ideally we want to be of similar performance in the same team. Not always possible.

A better gauge of performance is to come out to ATTA at Calga on 4th of May and do the 25k ITT

I've entered the hill climb, which I assume I'll suck in. Crit will depend on grading. Haven't decided on the sportif

Simon, for the hill climb, am I over geared on 39-23. I do have a 25 cassette I could swap on

Bathurst racing and sportif this weekend

Surprised not to see a thread on this.

Entries are still open for the Saturday NSW Hill climb champs and the Bathurst Crit. I suspect they will be closed sometime today.

The Sportif on Sunday is still open and its available to a ride-it license, race license not required.

Actually, this does sound tempting, provided the weather clears up. Any idea what masters grades will race, as it seems they only have an hour in which to run them? And what is the dragway course like - is it similar to the speedway? The masters will be graded, ie A, B, C. Number of grades depends ...
