From the Melbourne to Warrnambool on the weekend. Broken collar bone or not, could not resist the temptation of lining up again for this race. Second oldest one day race in the world (behind Liege-Bastogne-Liege) and used to be the longest (now a mere 262km).



Was it a closed road? Any pros turn up for it? There's normally a few aren't there?

Full road closure. No "Pro's" in terms of Euro guys, but the Aussie scene is damn strong now.

Floris Goesinnen won it, he rides for Drapac. He rode 4 years for Skil and was the last guy caught from the break in 2010 Flanders - so fair to say, the man can ride.

A lot of starters, a lot of varying skill levels. A lot of crashes :(


JamieL and shampoo, great shots!

And that's the thing that scares me about massive bunch riding like that, you can't account for other peoples expereince or skills, hence why I prefer riding alone and only rarely enter any road events.

How did you fare in the ride?

Given my injury, happy to make it home with the second bunch on the road. Got dropped on the Camperdown climb. LeMond trainer can only prepare you for so much I guess :(


shampoo, great shots mate :thumbup:
