Ginsana is the most thoroughly researched Panax ginseng extract in the world.

What is Ginsana used for?

Traditionally, Panax ginseng was used as an adaptogen and to support adrenal health, acting as a restorative agent to enhance mental and physical capacities during times of stress.
Clinical trials have demonstrated that Ginsana:
Energises and invigorates the body
Strengthens the immune system
Improves physical performance, endurance, stamina and fitness
Assists recovery from states of fatigue and exhaustion
Many people may benefit from taking Ginsana, including:
Busy people requiring additional energy in their day: reduces physical strain; improves physical energy and the immune system response
Physically active people and athletes: improves oxygen uptake and endurance; increases fitness and shortens recovery time.
People who are fatigued and have low immune function or recurrent infections: improves immune response and reduces the incidence of common infections such as cold and flu

Hi all,

Here's an overview of the DHBC Racing National Road Series Team and what the proposed plan is.

The teams bio can be found here:
http://nationalroadseries.subaru.com.au ... bc-racing/

At present we are hoping to be able to enter and race the following events but due to restrictions on budget and upon peoples ability to travel and work commitments it will depend on whether or not these are all feasible.


1.Queensland- 19th May Troy Bayliss invitational;
2. South Australia- May 24-26 Tour of Adelaide (not yet confirmed, James checking costs)
3. New South WalesJune 19-22 North West Tour (Alex finding a fourth rider & finding a driver).
4. New South Wales- 15th September Goulburn to Sydney
5. ACT- 20-22 September Canberra Tour
6. Tasmania- 29th September- 6th October Tasmania tour
7. Victoria- 2-13 October warnabool/ shipwreck Classic
8. New South Wales 26th October Grafton to Inverell

The team will need to do a fair bit of fund raising throughout the year to make all this possible, along with sponsorship money from our sponsors shown in the original post.

I hoping to use this thread for a blog so that the club can be part of the teams exeriences with lots of photos and stories. I am unlikely to attend many events myself, so it should have lots of variety.

DHBC NRS Racing update

We will be looking to make monthly updates on the happening within the DHBC NRS racing team. The first month for our team has been very exciting, we haven’t had much racing but we have been building our team structure and working on getting established in the Sydney cycling scene.

Early in April our new kit from Kevin at Babici arrived (). John worked closely with Kevin to get the kit designed and the results are fantastic. The colours are slightly different to the standard DHBC kit and different enough from other NRS team to be able to distinguish our riders. If you are looking for some new Australian sourced kit definitely look at Babici as all of the NRS team are very happy with the products.

On the racing front we have had riders representing the team at Bathurst to Blaney, Sydney Road titles, Penny farthing Powerhouse Cup and regularly at Heffron on Saturdays. Special mention to Bill who raced to 15th in the NSW hill climb and won the elite Div 3 crit at B2B. Alex and James both raced at the Sydney road titles finishing safely in the bunch on wet cold day out at Penrith regatta centre. James and Tim raced the Powerhouse cup, which is raced on penny farthings, James took the top step while Tim was a close second.

The next major event for the NRS team will be at the Tour of North west where the team will make its NRS debut. This is the major NSW racing cycling event and will test the team across the week long schedule. In the mean time team members will be racing at Cootamundra this weekend and heading to the Troy Bayliss invitational up on the gold coast next weekend ( ).

The team will be out and about on the weekends training and competing in local racing. Feel free to come say hi and have a chat, don’t mention the beard.

DHBC racing.

Hi all,

This weekend marks the first real test for DHBC Racing with the team ravelling up to the Gold Coast to race the Troy Baylis Invitational. This race was chosen as a warm up race as the first real one day classic on the calender which has a very challenging course profile reminiscent of what the team will face later in the season at Grafton but shorter in length which will be good for building form. Whilst the race is not part of the National Road Series it is an A grade invitational only event which has drawn a number of NRS teams and as such gives the team a more low key exposure to the level of racing the team will expect in the NRS.

Here is the course profile which as you can see feautures about 1500ms of climbing with the finish peaking with a 900m ascent. It is expected that the race will likely have a break away but the winners will probably come from the main bunch going up the final climb. Held inland from the gold coast the race will feature some beautiful scenery and no doubt include some extremely breath taking sights. Fingers crossed early season training will pay off and the boys can find their climbing legs.



DHBC Racing will be:
Alex Chubb - Elite Male
James Fowler- Elite Male
Bill Bolton - U/19
Chris Hageman- U/19 (on loan from Racing Kangaroos but DHBC Club member)

Features of the race:
The race will feature one intermediate sprint and two king of the mountains sprints each holding separate prize money.

Team Tactics-
DHBC Racing will attempt to get one rider in the break away if it forms who will attempt also aim to take intermediate sprint points. For this race there is a general feeling that everybody on the team has an equal chance of victory with no one really knowing what sort of form they are carrying and instead this event will be used appoint a team leader for NRS Races laer in the season.

Live up dates:
Keep tuned throughout the weekend as updates will be posted including photos.

The team touched down in Brisbane yesterday. With a hire van the bikes had to be fitted which was 'like playing tetris'



Once arriving at the hotel room the reassembly begun.



This morning the team travelled to the gold coast for the start line. Here Alex gets ready prior to the start.




Today is race day, good luck to the boys!

Results are in and the boys have done exceptionally well!

http://timing.sitedynamics.com.au/?action=race&race=138

Chris has done his team and club proud with an amazing 12th place only a couple of minutes down on the winner. Which is an amazing result for an U/19. Bill & James too did well in 49th and 50th places.

We'll get a report up soon.

Troy Bayliss Invitational Race Report by Alex Chubb

Gusting winds, biting cold and jagged snow top peaks cast a shadow on the forlorn frost stricken riders as they fought their way up the final climb. Thankfully this is a scene from this year’s Giro and sets a stark contrast to the beautifully sunny day which greeted the DHBC racing riders as they arrived in the small country town of Canungra, in south eastern Queensland. According to Wikipedia Canungra normally has a population of 746, but today that number was swollen somewhat, in quantity rather than weight, with just shy of one hundred elite cyclist for the Inaugural Troy Bayliss invitational classic. Featuring some of Australia’s top National Road Series teams including Budget Fork Lifts, the race was always going to be challenging.

The course was set through rolling, windswept terrain culminating in a 20km final climb up O’Reilly’s summit, for a total distance of 125kms. DHBC racing sent four riders to contest the event, James Fowler, Bill Bolton, Chris Hageman and Alex Chubb.



With a few words from the man Troy Bayliss himself, including a vague mention of the phrase ‘being careful of the Paris-Roubaix section’, the peloton rolled out. After the normal kilometre or two neutral zone the attacks began to come and with that the pace was on, with the average speed for the first two hours in excess of 43km/h. The ‘Paris-Roubaix’ section turned out to be a number of short stretches of potholed gravel road works, which proceeded to further widen the gaps in the bunch. The DHBC Racing riders managed to stay towards the front and kept out of the affray at the rear of the bunch, with large number of the field being shelled early on.

James and Bill unfortunately got caught out in a split just before the eighty kilometre mark and Alex got dropped off several kilometres after over extending himself in the wind. Chris Hageman remainrd safely ensconced in the rapidly dwindling peloton as it approached the final climb up to the summit at O’Reilly’s. The early slopes saw more riders dispatched straight away as the heads of state began to dance on the pedals and increase the tempo thanks Paul and Phil. A quick look down at the speedo in the following van revealed a steady climbing speed of thirty five on the lower slopes. A breakaway which had established itself on the flat roads hung on to a handful of seconds, with riders scrambling bridge across the gap.



By the time the second half of the ascent arrived a breakaway of four had just short of a minute on the chasing reminisce of the peloton which contained less than twenty riders. The chief commissarie cracking voice could be heard over the race radio, calling the rider’s numbers as they slipped off the back of the bunch. “Number 4, Budget forklifts”, “Number 51 GPM racing”, we shouted in the van praying (in an atheist way) not to hear number 10. The final kilometre of the climb kicked up to 12%+ gradient, and this was just enough to unhitch Chris. He crossed the line a handful of seconds after the main bunch, finishing in 12th place overall. Below is a shot furiously taken from the window of our team van, with the remaining 0.1% battery life of our camera.



It was a fantastic result for both Chris and the team overall, with Bill and James fighting on to finish the stage despite getting dropped. The next major aim for the DHBC Racing team is the Santos North west Tour, running from Wed 19th June through to Sun 22nd, featuring 5 tough stages over 4 days. The team will also be out racing local events including Heffron Park and Wagga Wagga road race, so make sure to say hello.

Given this is our team’s first year on the NRS circuit and many readers mightn't be familiar with racing I thought I might try and have an observations from the road section at the end of the reports, so to kick us off.

Observations

• Racing cyclist can eat a lot. Dinner for four riders the night before the race consisted of the following: 2kgs of pasta, 2 blocks of haloumi, two loafs of bread, a chicken, a kilo of salad, a pumpkin, and two jars of pesto. Plus chocolate for dessert.
• Protour team managers must be crazy drivers in order to keep up with the riders on the twisting mountain roads. We were having enough trouble on the way up.
• A team Soigneur is worth his or her weight in gold. We were lucky enough to have Simon Bolton on this occasion, who despite his hatred of automatic vehicles made a fantastic driver and a brilliant chef. Rumour has it he may soon be offered a job at Team Sky.
Till next time. Alex.

Great read this. The more I hear and read of our NRS team the more I believe they should be supported by the rest of the club.
To hell with us oldies, with visions of grandueur in grades D, C etc. Initatives like this polish our young members who have the youth and opportunity to be the next, may I say, Cadel.
Great to hear Chris, Alex, James and Bill getting the experience to maybe make this happen. I am sure there are more 20 somethings with potential and keen to race, particularly among the women. We should look at ways to encourage everyone.

Hi all,

As part of the teams agreement with Ginsana, DHBC Racing undertook some early season time trial training at Tempe two weeks ago. Over the next 10 weeks we will do 3 more efforts in which Ginsana will attempt to gauge the benefit of their product whilst the results can also be used as an indicator for form and it will be interesting as racing heats up if times speed up too. Whilst not all riders are individual pursuit specialists and in fact some make up the track sprint program which you can gauge from their times, a time in the 5:30's is an indication of good form.

Most riders rode a standard Track bike, no race wheels or aero bars.


James Fowler 5:50 " 23
Tim Llewellyn 6:01"10
John Nguyen 5:31"17
Rhys Edwards 6:21 "70
Anthony Pham 6:32"65
Nathan Gerard 6:15
Alex Chubb 5:28"97
Mathew Wallman 5:37"02
Bill Bolton 5:38 '30

Hello everybody and welcome to the next event on the calander,


The Santos North West Tour. This marks DHBC Racing’s introduction to the National Road series after a steady build up over the last few months. For most riders in the team it will also be an introduction to stage racing as the NWT is made up of five stages requiring very different skill base.









DHBC Racing will be:
Alex Chubb - Elite Male
Michael Chidgey- Elite Male
Matthew Wallman- Elite Male
Bill Bolton - U/19
James Swadling (Guest rider allocated from CNSW as want teams of 5, not the NRS required 4)

Also Racing & travelling with DHBC Racing, DHBC Club member
Chris Hageman- U/19 (Racing for the Racing Kangaroos)

Features of the race:



Team Tactics-
DHBC Racing will predominantly be looking for stage wins in the years Santos North West Tour, with the team goal to acquire 10 ten finishes in stages. The designated team leader will be Alex who will be hoping for a good result in the prologue and if he does well and is in with a chance will have the team supporting him in General Classification aspirations. Points to watch out; Bill will be one to watch in the second stage criterium with increasingly good form and two wins to his name in criteriums this year he will be in with a chance on the short sharp race; when the race turns skyward with Cat 1 climbs in stages 3 and 4, the climbers Chris and James will likely make their marks and hopefully be near the front of the race.

Live up dates:
Keep tuned throughout the weekend as updates will be posted including photos.

Yesterday was mixed day for DHBC with Chris continuing to show he has a wealth of ability finishing 25th on a tough stage. Fellow under U/19 Bill finished 7 minutes down on the winners and for his for elite men's road tour is showing he has what it takes to race at this level.

For DHBC Racing it proved to be very challenging day with first Alex crashing and unable to come home within the time cut, MAtt Finished 36 minutes down and too missed the time cut, guest rider James Sawdling came in 20 minutes down and reports has ridden his bike off needing a new bike to
start today.

Today's stage is the queen stage of the North West Tour with a mountain top finish. It will be a day for the climbers and likely be a good day for Chris to show his climbing legs, however will also be expected to support racing kangaroos team leader Brodie Talbot who looks strong. For DHBC Racing it will be again a day of conservation where Bill will aim to finish in the main bunch in anticipation of tomorrow's final stage. If JAmes can find a bike and is able to start he should be in the thick of the race as a good climber and will hopefully get a good result. Here's the profile for today's stage.

Good luck boys! It has been a very exciting few days with many ups and downs.

Thanks for the updates Simon.

Really sorry to hear about the crashes and it must indeed be tough racing if people are missing the cutoff.

Thinking of you all and best wishes for today and tomorrow. Good luck!

Update from Alex:

"I've got a damaged wrist, and a cracked helmet so they won't let me race without a medical cert. Bikes covered in blood but only real damage is rear derailier hanger"

Mid race update from the convoy. Big crash about 25km in involving 30 something riders. Chris went down, no real major injuries but he did snap his bars in half, so his race is over. About 80km into the stage at the moment. Bill is still safely in the peleton with about 25km of rolling hills left before the final big climb.

What drama! The NRS certainly hasn't disappointed on the excitement factor. Lots of bad luck for DHBC.

But go Bill!

Santos North West Tour Report by Bill Bolton

After a fairly chaotic few days leading up to the tour, Alex, Matt, Jayde, Chris and I crammed ourselves into our Toyota Prado and headed up to Narrabri. The care was pretty full, with five people, four bikes, race wheels (thank you John for the loan of yours) and luggage. After a few food stops and a 3-hour game of 20 questions we finally crawled out of the car at the Narrabri RSL and caught the last part of the pre-race meeting.

After dropping Chris at the Racing Kangaroo’s accommodation the rest of us headed to our own accommodation where we soon learnt that the booking hadn’t worked out and we’d booked one instead of two rooms. Fortunately it did have a double bed and a bunk so we could logistically fit four people, luggage and three bikes in it. We then drove back into town and stopped at the most populated Chinese restaurant we could find. Matt enjoyed an exotic Singapore noodle made up of what seemed to be two-minute noodles and spam, To say the least, Matt wasn’t extremely impressed.

Stage 1
After a bit of bike prep, the team headed out to the start of the time trial. Having previously thought that we weren’t even allowed TT bars we found out at the start that some riders were on full TT bikes. It wasn’t too long, but everyone managed a grimace by the end. You had to make sure that your were looking composed as you passed the photographer, Mark Gunther, 500m into the stage. And thanks James for the aero helmet. We all put in good times and no one felt too tired for the crit three hours later.

Stage 2
The three of us had a quick warm up on the crit track, a 1.1km loop around the town center. After a bit of excitement on the line – a Kenyan rider taking a quick pre race leak in the middle of the bunch - we rolled out. With a bunch of 130 riders it was the biggest crit I think any of us had raced and with the very high speed the inevitable happened within the first seven laps. A group of riders went down half way along the front straight holding up a lot of riders including Alex and Matt. Fortunately, after a frantic lap of riders trying to chase back on, the race was paused and restarted with 23 laps to go. To give an idea of the pace the average speed was 43.5km/h despite a block headwind in the front straight and a stop half way through. The speed in the back straight was consistently hitting 55 kph. We decided that we’d give Chinese a miss that night and went to the Narrabri bowling club which had one vegetarian option for Alex which was, of course, sold out. He did get something vegetable in the end.

Stage 3
The first road stage was interesting because to get to the start we had to drive the course in reverse. I’m not sure whether this was a good or bad thing but it didn’t really matter as the DHBC team were all dropped on the first rudely placed hill at 9km in. Three bunches formed after the first hill – the lead group, the first chase group and the grupetto which Alex and I found ourselves in. After a few kilometers of pacelining Alex was taken out by a backwards flying wheel as the guy in front of him stood up. Fortunately Jayde and an ambulance pulled up and after a few minutes he was back on the bike. My group continued on and caught the peloton about 10km from the next hill. This gave me a good few minutes to recover before getting dropped again half way up the next hill. After forming another pace line behind the peloton and smashing it for the next 20km I was completely drained and felt almost like I was going to black out. At this point I got dropped with about 5km to go. I crawled into Narrabri and found myself in the town centre and had no idea where the finish line was. After asking three people and riding an extra two kilometers around town I found my way to the line and managed to cross it the wrong way. Matt rolled across next looking adequately tired for someone who had just solo tt’d the last 95km. Not too long after Matt, Alex crossed having donated a generous portion of skin from his hand to the road. In hindsight this is definitely the hardest ride I have ever done.

We’d booked different accommodation for the third night and found ourselves staying in what seemed to be a German hippy camp. We spent the night eating pizza and playing cards and managed to get a good 11 hours of sleep.

Stage 4
Coonabarabran to Siding Spring (massive hill to Observatory).
There was a café at the accommodation and we had coffees, scones and jam and cream for breakfast. The eventful drive to Coonabarabran was kicked off by meeting an enormous and scary looking horse that wouldn’t move off the road as we approached, even with a bit of encouragement from the horn. As we moved closer to civilization we got reception for the first time since the end of the previous stage and learnt that Matt and Alex hadn’t quite made the time cut. This wasn’t a problem for Alex as he wouldn’t have ridden anyway due to his injuries and a mechanical problem but was a bit disappointing for Matt who ended up spending the day riding along chatting to Crafty who was in the race car following the women’s race.

We arrived at the Coonabarabran information centre where the race was to start and I warmed up. We then rolled out with the neutral start – strangely it seemed to be the most dangerous part of the race with lots of accelerations and sudden braking to keep up with the lead car. The bunch seemed to hold together up the first climb - 4km and 250m of ascent - dropping only a few. As we approached the descent I moved up the bunch to about the middle and a few kms in to the decent a fairly large crash unfolded in front of me. About 7 riders went down and fortunately I managed to slam the brakes on, come to a stop and roll around them. However, many people around me were not so lucky. In total around 30 people were reported to have come down or have been held up and 11 people couldn’t continue the race . Two of them had to be airlifted to hospital.
Chris was one of the unlucky people coming down not too badly but sadly he managed to acquire some grazes and snapped carbon bars. He still managed to descend the rest of the way and ride on for another 50 kms before being picked up by his team car.

The rest of the stage went well for me and I achieved my goal of hanging on until the bottom of the big climb (12kms and 700m of ascent) where I dropped off the back and tempoed the rest of the way up at my own speed, crossing the line 63rd and 12 minutes after the winner.

Back to hippy home at Pilliga Pottery. We had another pizza and cards night which sounded like it was going to end loudly as a group of wedding guests came back to their rooms right next to ours as we were going to sleep and they kindly invited us to come out and drink with them. Luckily they were quite quiet and we managed to get a decent night’s sleep.


Stage 5
After another breakfast of coffee, scones and jam and cream we headed out to Coonabarabran again, to the start of both Stage 5 of the Tour and the Coonabarabran to Gunnedah handicap (which both Chris and Matt took part in as they were unable to finish the tour) - Chris riding on Alex’s bike. S

Stage 5 finished lower than the start – a good sign – and was quite fast. However, as I wasn’t very close to the front I could sit in and didn’t waste too much energy in the wind. The kilometers seemed to shoot past with another stage completed at 43.5kph. After 3 hours or so in the saddle we came into Gunnedah at a fairly high pace. I had moved close to the front of the bunch to try to finish further up than usual. However, Matt and I unfortunately struggled with the same problem in our races as we didn’t know the finishing route and got stuck on the outside going round a roundabout on the edge of town. Most rest of the peloton went through the inside and we were both left right out of the sprint.

I was really happy to finish the race and it was very unfortunate that the other team members had such bad luck. All in all it was a very new experience for me – as well as being the longest and only stage race I have completed. I am really looking forward to the next one, especially if I don’t have to write the race report.

On behalf of the team thanks to everyone for all the support on facebook and to Simon for his organization and communications.

I’d also like to personally thank John Nguyen and James Fowler for lending me their equipment, Jayde for driving the team car, and the rest of the team for their support.

Yep. You are now the roving road race reporter for the DHBC racing team. Embrace it and "be" the pen.

Great work!

Excellent report thanks Bill! Thanks for taking the time and effort to write it up so that others in the club get a sense of what's involved in the NRS. It was a good insight into the race and glad you all got an opportunity to ride an NRS Stage Race.

That you did so well is a credit to you, considering all the things no-one knew. And there are some really good teams and riders there too.

I'm disconcerted that blokes "have a leak" at the start line, in the middle of the bunch. But there you go.

And who knew there were hippies in Narrabri? Not me.

I can confirm that the other riders were also quite shocked and unimpressed with the mid pack, pre race pee. Its fair to say that there was some yelling.

On a happier note there are plenty of photos and even a 'Back Stage Pass' video to follow shortly.
