Melbourne Ironman

A few of us went down to watch our good friend and Team Mate Stu compete in the Melbourne Ironman
yesterday , we had a great spot to watch from thanks to our new Team Sponsors Giant Bikes who had set up a 1km from the finish and the atmosphere was fantastic .
Good , Bad and Ugly is how I would describe some of those Tri outfits but my hat goes off to them for entering and finishing such a massive event
Stu came through our area to a massive cheer and a little good natured abuse still looking the goods and finished in 9 hours 23 mins .....
Cheers to you Stu !!!!

Rapha Gentlemen's Race

The early pick up was not fun 5.15 to be exact ( thanks Nadine ) but we needed to get to the start by 6.30 for riders briefing
It was cold , wet and dark but the coffee van was on hand to warm us up .
I was in the Rapha Continental Team and our start time was 8 o'clock last cab of the rank
A nice big heavy rain shower greeted us on the start line 3,2,1 and we were off and for the next 140 km's ......... hills , flat long narrow roads , gravel , beautiful scenery , sunshine , rain , coffee , laughs,now I remember why I love riding my bike so much I had a ball
Thanks to Rapha Australia for putting the event on , and for the record ( not that we care because it wasn't a race ) HaHa we came in 3rd
Cheers

A new week ....

Wide eyed and innocent

What does the world have to offer for Orlando ....new beginnings and new hope ?

Making a statement

Sometimes stuff that looks like it shouldn't go together just works
High Viz shoe covers certainly attract a lot of attention which is a good thing in my mind because it means people notice you especially car drivers ....its like having lights on ya feet .
