Great result against a really strong field!

The times look fast compared to previous years - Durbridge was 3 minutes quicker this year compared to last, and 4 minutes quicker than Meyer's time in 2012.

What were the conditions like? (in 2012 the roads were wet and it was windy as all hell, in 2011 was raining pretty heavily, but the wind wasn't too bad)

Was windy as hell! But, not 'as bad' as I thought it would be.

Times are up as it's a different course :wink: plus we didn't have to fight cars, as after Jack got knocked off last year they closed the roads. Which was very, very much appreciated.

We rag on about Cycling Australia a bit, but in this case :thumbup: closed roads was excellent.

Funny thing is the Wiliers are also all Taiwanese and quite possibly come out of Merida's plant!

I'm just a lowly rider, but once every so often I get to rub shoulders with the fast guys. One of the great things about out sport.


I'll be doing the road race on Sunday, hopefully I last a little longer this year :lol: but no way I'll make the end.

Today, at the New Zealand Nationals, no booties were allowed as per the new UCI rules say they must be used in case of bad weather only, not for aerodynamic purposes.

Funny they were anal about that and not level seats and all the other little things the UCI takes issue with.

Guess it comes down to who is the chief comm on the day.

I wondered about that seeing the pictures. Villumsen was wearing them though I think?

Seems ridiculous (though hardly surprising).
