I will let the other teams post their results (teams please add your stories below), woman first:

Woman's Masters: in order of height - Trouty, Michele Pezzutti, Camilla, Eleri.
This year us woman decided we would take this seriously (ok, we only trained together twice) but we were serious enough to all get aero bars, a team manager (Stuart) who was also our sognoir, support vehicle and film documenter. Our number 1 goal was to beat the time of the mens DHBC dawdlers, who were now split into 2 teams, The "Front" and "Rear Derailleurs". Ok so now we had 2 teams to beat.

We took off quiet conservatively and were able to see the 2 flashes of red DHBC elite boys finishing as we were starting, giving us some shouts of encouragement. The first 5 km didn't go as planned with Eleri dropping her chain. Although we did have our support car in Stuart, the hi def camera clearly documented his failure in helping Eleri successfully, and not even giving her a push to get her on her way. We lost valuable time that I'm sure cost us the gold medal! (wishful thinking but it works for us). In the end we had so much fun riding in a team..we didn't come last, and we're 2 minutes 30 off third. We will keep plugging on next year. All I can say is.....WE BEAT THE BOYS.....goal achieved. Woohoo. In their defence their fake moustaches gave us a substantial weight and aero advantage.

Next year "Derailleurs", look out. Stuart will be getting together a rival team called the Carbon Cranks. Unfortunately for the derailleurs, with the lure of real brakes that work, we have bought Adams contract and he will be exiting the Derailleurs in 2012. No steel, or moustaches on this team. I will even drive the support car. We hear karzwell is looking for a new team that doesn't ride steel? Karzy....if the price is right we could consider you.

@Marc, you need to talk to Pete T about the pre-race challenge and the general banter .. left over from last year

It's all just friendly competition Marc. The Derailuers beat us last year by 30 seconds, so they threw the gauntlet down. Next year we will have the "DHBC Carbon Cranks" to beat. So get training. It's great motivation for us girls to train next year.

Elite Men Team report (James, Simon, Tim, Anthony)
After a night at RAW for last minute training, with some Carbo loading consisting of Pizza and Beer afterwards, preparation was complete. Saturday morning came along, and i woke with a sore throat not feeling the best (it had turned up Friday afternoon), but being the transport for the majority of the team, i couldn't let them down.

With a casual 5min warmup (if you can call it that), we raced out to start our time trial, not before some comments about our aero hairy legs. Turning the first corner to begin the uphill outward trip, the traffic controllers must have been asleep, because suddenly a big truck was right behind us (luckily not on us). So the drag to the turnaround began, but with me being the only hill lover, it was steady going with Tim managing to have a chat with everyone we passed. When we made the turnaround we ramped the speed up, and i think we limited our loses quite well on the downhill run.

Lap 2 commenced with what seemed to be some increasing wind, and some tiring legs, our second lap went much like the first. Slow and steady uphill, fast as possible downhill. Coming to the finish, we lost Anthony with just over 1km to go, and although we were 30min behind the winners, it was a great team ride, but we made add some more conventional training to next years effort.

Post ride was followed by a trip to HopDog beerworks for debrief, where we were treated to a free tasting of some delicious beers, before heading back to Sydney. Unfortunately for me, post race recovery isn't going well, as my lingering cold has finally built up to leave me trying to recover at home.

Hilarious report, but so true John!
And don't forget, we had the oldest and most unique bikes at the comp. Big plus.
DHBC are not only fast (not the 'Derailleurs') but also fun.

Another view from the Team Rear Derailleur perspective.

The preparation was astounding. I guarantee no other team in the whole championship were actually hand filing sprocket teeth on the morning of the Race, trying for that little advantage. In their pyjamas.

Later that same morning, it was a pleasure to see Lindsay using his "Chook Whisperer" skill to lure the local hens over to our casa's front yard for breakfast duty. Alas no eggs. Next year!

But that gave the Derailleurs more time to continue with our blood pressure monitoring program. There was much discussion and comparison about this, but it ensured there was absolutely no blood doping.

Which brings me to the actual Team Time Trial. Right on the start line, amidst a lot of banter from our rivals, Team Skyte, we were trying to prepare our souls for the testing One Hour And Fifteen Minutes ahead. All we had to do was beat that time, and victory would be ours AGAIN.

We set our alarm clock and off we scooted.

What threw us was that the first half of the course seemed to be uphill.

We pulled over and checked the map. What then followed could best be described as the Great Braidwood Road Map Folding Debacle of 2012.

After checking our blood pressures, off we went again, eyes peeled for the Team Skyte tacks.

You would think the roads would be quiet during The TTT, but we were loudly discussing the Culburra Lamb Shanks Conspiracy, and didn't hear our alarm clock going off at One Hour and Fifteen Minutes.

So we came across the Finish Line relaxed and confident, believing we had done our duty as Dawdlers.

Only to be told, gleefully, that we had been beaten. Just.

I've only got two words to say now.

Next Year.

More Women's Masters pics. Bicisport just managed to get past the DHBC support car (but not riders) before the turn-around, then passed at the turn-around due to DHBC going a bit too far but were re-caught before the line. Photos via the the official website here >> http://www.eliteenergy.com.au/cycling.html (there's some more of the Elite teams too).

Hey,
DHBC's Front and Rear Derailleurs are on the front page of the CNSW report!
That is a win in itself!

So the combined results are (in order of how quick they were)
Place/Competitors Other Stuff (last year comparison)
==================================================
8/13 Dulwich Hill EM13 1hr:58:36.71 - Alex, Matt, John, Joshua (last year approx team 4/5)
10/25 Dulwich Hill BC M+6 1hr:04:15.40 - Mike, Tom, Craig, Mark (last year approx team 4/11)
11/13 Dulwich Hill EM15 2hr:18:52.43 - Tim, Simon, James, Anthony (last year approx team 5/5)
6/7 Dulwich Hill WM4 1hr:15:17.20 - Eleri, Jo, Camilla, Michelle
42/42 Dulwich Hill MAA38 1hr:18:05.07 - names removed to protect the innocent (last year approx team - last)
25/25 Dulwich Hill BC M+17 1hr:23:53.33 - names removed to protect the innocent (last year approx team - last)

So in last year / this year analysis. The 2 elite teams both improved, the M+6 team did about the same as last year. Front and Rear derailleur teams were exactly on target.

The M+6 team was best placed, but the real story is;
Medal wise, minutes:seconds behind bronze medal
EM13 - 6:23 (3:12 per lap)
M+6 - 4:03
EM15 - 26:39 (13:20 per lap)
WM4 - 2:40
MAA38 - 22:14
M+17 - 23:41

So based on that I declare Eleri, Jo, Camilla and Michelle the NSW DHBC TTT champions

Good grief!

And can I just add that Tim was on the blather going downhill too - at least he managed to have a chat to us girls, whilst whizzing past in the other direction, which I very much appreciated.

Well, after many fruitless attempts I've given up trying to embed the video, so I'll just link it instead.

Here's the the WMAS team getting underway:





Here's Team Front Derailleur. The bemusement of some of the crowd is evident, though fortunately they didn't suffer the catcalls about "porno moustaches" that Team Rear Derailleur copped from our cheer squad.

is for those of us who listened to John J carrying on whilst watching Paul Sherwin's commentary of the ITT on the penultimate day of the TDF.

Actually, it's probably just for John...
