MWCC is holding their monthly road race on Sunday. Riders can enter on the MWCC web site.
This is great racing on a challenging course.
I plan to ride c grade.

You can enter online ahead of time too - might be a good idea

Lovely morning for road racing at West Head.

C grade was a bit different this month, with all the MWCC riders in one race and all other clubs in another, and the climb out of Akuna Bay was raced, nor neutral.

For whatever reason I didn't have a good race and was just bunch filler today. Even though I was not having any trouble staying on, by half way through the first lap I was already making excuses to myself, which is not good. So when the heat went on for the sprint, I folded and just rolled in. As they say,"90% of sport is half mental" or something like that.

So the lesson is the same as from last week's no-show at the ITT: Apply rule 5.

While on 'the rules', I got number 13, should I have pinned it on upside-down?

You know lucky 13 goes inverted. Perhaps that was the source of your misfortune?
