Friday and only 176 km up for the week. Unfortunately these days the heat knocks the stuffing out of me. Last Sunday at Heffron Park there were four crashes and one mid bunch blowout, luckily it happened on a straight so no falls. Early on during the preliminary races I was having a chat with Chris Blomfield-Brown and I asked him how he was recovering after his back problems and if he had been doing much riding. He proudly informed me that he and a mate had just ridden to Melbourne on fixies. Well, this blew me away! Chris said that he only got back on the Saturday and the next thing that I know he is in the middle of the bunch racing. Is there no stopping this man? He obviously is blessed with first class genes and the need to push the limits.
The Super V8 cars are coming back to SOP and half the roads are blocked off, which is a bit frustrating for the riders and so a lot of riders have stopped coming and this means a much smaller group at George’s Quad café. more ...
We're nearing the end of the racing season and time to celebrate the real reason for riding--camaraderie--with the running of the tempo Cup on Sunday 7 December at the Sydney Motorsport Park, Eastern Creek.more ...
As usual it will be a fun day with the emphasis on enjoyment. There will be the famous Friendship Lap; the Club Song (learn the words); copious amounts of performance-enhancing liquid to toast Friendship in Cycling; and the awarding of the tempo Cup to the friendliest Waratah member in 2014
