Re: Race Weight

Re: Dulwich Hill spotted

I saw someone riding off oxford onto crown st yesterday evening around 6:20pm, in a DHBC jersey. I was at mad mex having a wonderful burrito. I don't remember the bike he was on because I had to many beers, but I think he may have had boardshorts and a backpack.
