From the Stage 2 TT in the Tour de Perth

Road bikes, no TT bars allowed but a disk and helmet.


why the "no tt bars" rule?

a friend of mine raced the tour de perth, he came in ~30th in the TT. he's a young, tiny guy but his power output for the 26-27 minutes on course was ridiculous. made me wince with pain and i'm like 20kg heavier than him.

It seems to me that there's a pretty broad spread of talent from the top to the bottom of the NRS. the top guys are just that much better than the rest of the field. of the east coast guys that I know, some of them are really quick at club level but seem to be a fair way off the pace against the big boys. interesting series though, i'll be paying attention all year and watching the coverage on SBS.

will your team be doing every round? seems like a lot of travelling, including a few remote places which can't be cheap. as an outsider looking in, it seems like a bit more racing around the capital cities might make things a bit cheaper for competitors?

End of the cold weather. think it was up to 32C at the weekend. Just 2 weeks after racing through snow flurries in the UK.

Tour of Madiran. Two stages on the same day. Morning was short and proper fast. It's not so often that the average is above 43kph racing in UFOLEP. Afternoon was hot and hilly but everyone was a bit wiped out from the morning. Got in the right break again :). Came home with 18 bottles of wine. :lol:

Not sure on why no clip-on bars, to me it seems it was to keep the playing field a little more level.

The top guys really are a level above. I'm going to bite my tongue on some other aspects of it, but the top boys really really do mean business. Same as any sport really.

We won't be doing the whole NRS, don't have the budget for it. And there's more to racing well at national level than having a good club level palmares (as I am quickly discovering).

Won my cat 3 race this past weekend, attacked when we caught the first break with 35 to go and passed the line 4:21 up on the pack. Making the dumb face because I was trying to smirk but I was pretty tired

I think it's time you let someone else get a win, Jamie! This may be a daft question but do you feel there's any resentment from the French when a rosbif keeps on winning 'their' races?

At the moment i think it's OK... I was strong at the beginning of last year and then as the temperatures warmed up i dropped back. I should probably move up to race in French Federation races but there's a fair bit of paperwork to sort out and i'm leaving France in July so i can't really be bothered.

Ranks right up there with "the chicks are going to dig my twelvth level Fighter/Wizard" as one of the most misguided sentiments about the female psyche.

But it is a nice bike...

My mate found his wife on World of Warcraft.

True story.

There is someone for everyone.


My riding certainly doesn't score me girls though :(
