OK. So I moved some posts and it didn't really work that well. Anyway, lets go.

Just to start a new thread for general news, views and team creation outside of the Vintage Bikes section.

Info here >> http://www.nsw.cycling.org.au/cy_nsw/ra ... /13146.htm

I'l be part of a masters men's team with Dougie, Mark Hales and Adam. We will be trying to beat the women's masters team time (or at least we'll get close). Hopefully.

I believe the Masters team is now Jo, Eleri, Pia and myself due to injuries... I don't think the boys have a hope. Let the sledging begin.

Thanks Stuart

Paul, great to have you onboard for a 150 team.

Doing the maths, it looks like the 150 teams could take riders down to 46, as at 31 Dec 2013. However it does depend on who's interested and their age.

No reason why we can't field teams in the under 150, same fun, so if your interested and you were born after the invention of the horseless carriage, then let it be known.

I am tempted by this.
Will be 52 in dec-13 so can contribute a little to a 150+ theme. I can almost ride at Middies pace.
I have not raced before so I'm not really sure where to start.

There is no qualification, all we need is a race license

Teams are a minimum 3, maximum 4

The way its going with interest, we have 2 teams easy. More interest more teams.

No reason why we can't also enter a sub150 team

In Lindsay's post in the Vintage section he said CNSW had told him a silver 'recreational' license was enough but best to check.

BTW, Fri 19th and Sat 20th are the last 2 nights of the Tour de France, excepting the Paris finish. It is of course possible to drive down and back on the day, but it's a nice area to stay if the weather's good. Last year we drove down Friday night and also stayed Sat night. I guess that's the plan for this year too and I'm already scoping houses.

I'm also tempted and also 52. So if some one finds themselves in need of some old legs let me know. Keeping in mind I have a deficit in the race experience dept.

I think I'd like to try this out too.

As at 31 Dec I will be 46 yrs old, so I would hope to join a 150+ team.

A couple of things:
1. I've never raced before so would need to upgrade my licence. I note that I would need to have done this and entered into some other race before 20 May to qualify. [64a.11: Members must be financial with their represented club and Cycling NSW 2 Calendar months prior to the event and must produce their Race Licence at the event (Receipts of membership application will not be accepted)] Can anyone offer me advice here? Would a D grade Heffron race be a sensible option for me? Are there any coming up just so I can tick the box?

2. I hate losing. Any chance I could be paired with others who can average 35kph+ over the 40kms distance - or am I dreaming?

John

Hello Jonboy. You don't need to qualify. You just need to be a financial member of DHBC for 2 months prior (this is to stop wringers suddenly joining a club on the Friday). So, if you upgrade your license now you'd be fine. However, a Silver license may also be OK. Ring CNSW and ask them.

Re losing. Good luck there. The 'normal' masters category (four masters riders of any age over 30 i.e. MMAS All Ages Division (no age restrictions)), is the one my team & the Valley Wheelers teams wil be racing in. For me it's all about the fun of the event, and trying to beat the missus. Trust me, you won't be winning.

And perhaps look at the course - the first half is all up hill. Then turns around and comes back on the same route, plus a flat loop at the end. If you are looking at times, only look at the times from last year as it was at Nowra. The previous years were on other courses.

In a TT, the time for the team is calculated on the time of the 3rd person across the line. So you can't afford to leave any of your team mates out in the wind. If you drop the 4th one, then do it a late as possible and make them keep riding just in case someone up front has a mechanical or something.

Some research that may be useful.
http://www.nsw.cycling.org.au/cy_nsw/ra ... /13146.htm
which links to http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/nsw-ttt#
which shows elevation profile with elevation difference approx 240m and total elevation gains at 447m

or a strava of a chap who did this last year for reference

Checking the results from last year, at least for the geriatrics (150+), winning time was 57mins and best DHBC effort was 1hr 4mins, avg 37kph.

John.

Good to see you ready to pin on a number.

These days Heffron d grade is just juniors. You would be fine in c, or try the Vets or MWCC West Head road race.

And no one likes losing, but it happens more often than not.

This sounds like it could be a lot fun!

I'm keen on joining a 4 man team. (I'm 42) so could slip in as the 4th rider in a 150+ or happy to enter in the MMAS (all ages) category.

Cheers

AnthonyI, its not a problem, if we don't make the age category, then its effectively the same TTT, just different result sheet.

Phillip, johnboy, AnthonyI, could you please PM me your full name, email and mobile numbers - thanks

We now have 2 complete 150+ teams and a third one filling up. One reserve rider.

Hi Guys

I would be keen to join a team - I have just turned 40 and am keen to have another target to train for. I completed 3 Peaks in March and since then haven't cracked out as much training as I would like. Very happy to join a team and do some training in an effort for a respectable showing.

Cheers

Well despite Camilla's primary source of calories being wine, her fat levels are way too low.

OK jokes aside, I forgot to take warmers last year and weller came to the rescue.

Adrian, I am looking at dates (things have come up) so I'm 50% at this stage. I've had it penciled in since Jan so hopefully it firms to 100%. I'll let you know ASAP . 35+ km/hr is fine, should be able to pull some longer turns if required or depending on team makeup

Nozzle, I've complied a list of those interested, could you please PM me your name, email, mobile and age as at 31/12/2013.

If there's interest in having a practice this Sunday morning then Lacey and I are happy to ride out to Kernell with those interested departing Marrickville 6.30am, we can sit on a bunch then turn left to Kernell. Both Lacey and I are on a rest day this Sunday, so we intend to ride slow, the practice will not be about how fast we can go.

Let me know if your interested

Just been given partial clearance for this event. I'm able to do it as long as I am back in sydney by 6pm at the very latest (wife's birthday dinner so I can't miss it!). Looking at the start times from last year it will be touch and go so we may have to register 5 in the team and cross fingers.

Just by way of update for those entering this event I checked with Cycling NSW about my licence and things have changed (see response below). I've applied to upgrade my licence but if you are in the same boat move quickly as entries close this Sunday.
---------------
Hi John

Unfortunately a silver license will not be enough to compete in the Championships. New changes in the parameters for licensing from Cycling Australia means that the information that was provided to you (which was correct at the time) is now out of date. In order to compete in the Club Team Time Trial Championships all competitors must now hold a Gold Race License. Silver license holders will now be allowed to participate in timed non-competitive rides only (with all insurance terms for training as per standard).

To accommodate this change, Cycling NSW will be running the Sassafras Challenge Team Time Trial event in conjunction with the NSW Club Team Time Trial Championships. This event will be open to all Silver license holders and for this edition Cycling NSW approves the use of 1-day Silver licenses for all non-members participating. END

This is so stupid.
Cycling NSW can't retrospectively deregister people who have registered, paid and received written confirmations of our registrations. These people were provided CNSW license numbers. Their own website stated Silver licenses were okay for the NSW Team Time Trials.
If they push this retrospective ruling through I am making a formal complaint to NSW Fair Trading.

Sounds like they will transfer your entry to the Sassafras Challenge Team Time Trial. Seems the only difference is that you can't take a NSW medal.

And while we are on this discussion, the Sassafras Challenge Team Time Trial is open to all, there are no medals for this. You and use riders of any age and can even have males and females in the same team.

I just got a call from Dean Coxall from CNSW. He said CNSW are implementing changes made by Cycling Australia. Something to do with insurance requirements. Said there was no alternative but to upgrade if you want to participate. The Sassafras TT alternative sounds like a cop out.
Called Cycling Australia (Margaret ph. 9339 5800) and she said if you joined/renewed back in Sept/Oct/Nov 2012 you have to pay $96.50 to upgrade to a Gold license which last till the end of 2013.
To do a CyclingAustralia upgrade go to: http://www.cycling.org.au/site/cycling/ ... 20Card.pdf
You'll need to fill in the form and post/fax/email scan back to them.
Send emails to: membership@cycling.org.au

As it turns out I'm going to be in Nowra on 20 July. Why not go in a bike race.

I'd prefer the NSW time trial championships, but I may to too late unless people cannot make it at the last last minute . The other option is the Sassafras Challenge. I have a gold licence and race occasionally at C grade level. Looking at the MMAS 150+ Division.

Are there any teams that need another rider?

If I understand correctly, you can enter anyone in the challenge (silver license or greater) teams can also be mixed gender.

Entries close tonight. Even if you don't have it fully sorted, you can probably advise the lineup during the week

For those of you who are coming to Nowra this weekend, I just had a look at the forecast:

Temperature range is 5 degrees to 12 degrees. Possible shower on Sunday.

Bring your woolly gear!

Good luck DHBC, even to those growing number of Male Teams that are challenging the woman. We look forward to a fierce but friendly competition, and are keen to see what the dawdlers come up with next. Moustaches again or Wigs ?

See you all Saturday and we are ready for Team Stu, Adam, Cam and Dougy to unleash the Furry!

Hi - I'm heading down to take part in one of the (boys) teams. My other team members are staying down and racing on Sunday so I'm currently travelling alone. Does anyone want a lift?
Alternatively, is anyone else going down and coming back Saturday with space in a car?
Cheers
Simon

@Simon - that's not at all good. You'd think that CNSW would be wanting to encourage youth to race. No more elite riders to fill the spots?

Ironically master riders can race elite by upgrading their license. Am I correct in saying that Juniors can't upgrade to Elite license?

Race Report

Team;
- Simon B
- Paul A
- Mark L
- Mike C

Category;
Masters 150+

In the Masters 150+ category there were 21 teams entered. We were the 6th to last team to leave.



With 30 seconds to go, the barriers blew over onto the road just in front of us. Mark was held clipped in and on a clean line, where the rest of us had to merge with each other and go around the barrier. This resulted in Mark getting away from the rest of us and we didn't get ourselves fully sorted till we had done almost a K.

Once sorted we got on with it, the wind gave the course a very different feel to last year and we made good progress, cutting thru the terrain. About 15k out Simon popped, I went back to get him and after a little he decided to drop so I rolled back to Mark and Paul and we got back into it. Caught a dropped rider from the group ahead and finally made the turnaround.

Unlike last year, turning around didn't make it automatically easier but we did a good job of cutting thru the headwind and then at about 60kph my bike developed a loud rattle, I thought my cassette had come loose and we rolled slowly into an intersection that had 2 officials. They offered me a wheel, but it had the wrong cassette. I took the wheel out and we couldn't find anything wrong with it. I guessed that the skewer had come loose, we put the wheel back in and took off.

It took about 2k to refind the rhythm and we took the downhill by the short and curly's. Just before Nowra airport a car came out of side street, it just managed to get ahead of us, not slowing us down but it went straight into a 60kph zone and we were doing 65kph. Fortunately we didn't catch it.

Around the turnaround and despite the direction we ended up in a headwind for the final bit, I struggled on the front, Lacey went past me and hit the wall, so I went back on the front, we turned left to the airport and strung across the road for the final effort to the line.


We finished about a minute behind the team of Lindsay, Ron, Roger and Peter. Our time including my stop to inspect the rear wheel was 1h6m55s, I think we came 12th out of 21 teams. How much we lost in the stop is difficult to tell, perhaps we would of come 6th, but no way we would of got bronze, for that we needed to do 1h2m.

A wonderful time was had by all. Conditions were generally good. Sun was out but strong north-westerly winds dampened our spirits and times by a couple of minutes. Photos and comments to follow.

How great was this weekend. Awesome to see so many Dhbc teams enter, and no matter what position they came, they all seemed to have huge smiles on their faces for completing the painful task at hand. A big collection of the DHBC crew stayed back to support and see the final DHBC riders finish. Thanks Karzie for the great photos, look forward to reading some race reports.

Had a great time at the TTT. Absolutely totalled by race end. Never been that stuffed on the bike, ever. Big thanks to Cameron who did about 70% of the work on the out leg up that hill into that wind. Congrats to the girls for beating us by 4 mins :cry: We'll be back!

here's a couple of piccies.

The Pres and JoTheBuilder warm up

Congratulations to everyone who rode in the TTT. It was great to see so many DHBC out on the road and giving it a go.

DHBC fielded 8 teams along with St George. Only 2 clubs surpassed that - Waratah Masters and SuVelo both managed 9 teams. For us that is a great showing and for many riders it was their very first bicycle race. Thinking back a few years, the TTT in 2010 was my first entree into racing as well. To each of you - you've had a taste of racing, now have a racing licence and ... well, you might as well make use of it!

The Women's team rode at 12:20 and we stayed around all afternoon to see our club members depart, arrive and then debrief. Some like Stuart were barely comprehensible at the end, others were cool as a cucumber. It was a great way to spend an afternoon even though it was getting a bit chilly by the end.

Our team rode well and our plan to all finish together came to fruition. We all talked and communicated well and slowed up the leaders to keep our team together when some of us got gapped (OK, yes, that was me on the early hills - failed to warm up properly and we all know it takes me ages to get going). It was very windy and we got blown around a bit. Only got passed by one team and they won the Women's and we passed 2 others so that was good for morale. But we knew we really wanted to beat the Carbon Cranks and that motivated us. Thanks women!

On a personal note I was delighted to be asked as a Cycling Australia board member to present the medals to the Men's Open TTT winners.

Greetings from South Africa! We were pretty happy with the time considering it was our first race together, by my data the course was long at just under 42ks. We were hoping for a 40kph average - maybe next year. It was great to see so many red DHBC jerseys around the carpark!

And yes we were juiced up on Ginsana.

Some great times this year, both on and off the Course. DHBC had a big presence on a wild, windy and sometimes wet NSW Team Time Trial.

Mind you, the Saturday was “balmy” compared to the following day’s Nowra to Sassafras Handicap.

Popped in to catch the start – congrats to all who went out and faced the 65 kmh wind gusts!

Anyhow, back to the NSW team Time Trial, with 8 teams wearing Red with pride.

The 12 man Team of Steel’s Team Bus once again got jammed under the bridge at Culburra Beach, and we settled in to prepare for the war that is the Team Time Trial.

We repaired flat tyres, threw away brakes, drilled out transponders, filed cleats, topped up bidons and shortened knicks, all to great effect, spurned on by Lindsay’s Radio of Daggy Hits.

We decided to attempt the Triple.

1. Survive the Man of Steel Breakfast and remain conscious.

2. Maximum effort for the TTT and remain conscious.

3. Watch that night’s SBS Tour de France broadcast to the end and remain conscious.

The prize was unlimited use of the “Commissar’s Persuader” for the following 12 months.

Off to the start area and the place was buzzing. Great to catch up with all our teams, and attempt to warm up.

We cheered the girls off, then fronted up to the Commissar. Word on the line was that “zips were tricky in the wind” so we did our jerseys up tight and took off with a ring of Ron’s bell.

Despite a comfort stop, and pulling over to pick up a dropped pump, we still rode like the wind, or into the wind at least.

The months of precision training paid off, and it all finished too early.

We had a great time, and I think everybody else did too. Thanks to all who made it possible.
